Cooking Tip:

And the secret to fluffy Idlis lies in the fermentation of the flour , 
mix both the flour well and add salt and then mix them well and leave them 
for about 16 - 20 hours for the flour to ferment well.

A well fermented flour will give really fluffy and soft idli's.

If you live in US or any cold country , try keeping the flour in a
