Kanjeevaram Idly

Boiled Rice- 1/2 cup
Urad dal- 1/2 cup
Salt- 1 tsp
Pepper corns- 10-12
Cumin seed- 1tsp
Hing- 2 pinches
Ginger powder- 2 pinches
curry leaves- 2 sprigs
Curd- 2 tbsp
cooking soda- 1/4 tsp
Oil- 3 tbsp
ghee- 2 tbsp
Wash Rice and dal together and soak for 4 hours. Grind to a coarse consistency- like rawa. Powder pepper/ jeera coarsely and add to batter as also ginger powder, hing, curry leaves. Also add cooking soda, curd, oil, ghee and keep for 3-4 hours.
Grease the bottom and sides of a flat pan which you can keep inside the pressure cooker. Pour the batter in this and steam in the cooker. DO NOT PUT THE WEIGHT OF THE PRESSURE COOKER. Steam for 20 minutes. (Keep enough water in the cooker since the steaming duration is long).
Check if cooked by inserting a needle or knife which should come clean. Cool for some time and turn over to a plate and cut into pieces.
