How to make Horse gram Idly / Kollu Idly



1. Soak Horse gram/kollu and urad dhal  together and rice separately in water for atleast 4 hours. Remove the water from urad dal and kollu and Grind the it together by adding water gradually in a wet grinder. Until you get a soft, butter or creamy like texture. Take out the grounded flour in a big vessel.

2. Next, remove the water from the rice. Then grind the rice separately by adding water gradually to get a smooth paste. Take the grounded rice flour and add to already grounded paste. Mix well with enough salt using hands.

3. Make it to ferment for at least 8 to 12 hours overnight. Then you will get a fermented ildy flour ready to use. Take a idly plate apply oil on the plate and pure over the idly flour.

4. Then boil the water in the idly pot and stream the idlys for atleast 10 to 15 minutes in medium flame. Then take out the idlys its ready to eat.

Serve hot with any spicy chutney of your choice.


1. The quantity of horse gram can be increased and urad dhal can be decreased to minimum. But I usually to this measurement mentioned above.

2. The horse gram will wield more as compared to urad dhal as we used for normal idlys. It is more softer so dont increase the quantity of rice.
