Tips to make a perfect Jowar idli

1. The secret to the best idli is the fluffy and light urad dhal when it is ground to paste. 

2. Idli has to be slightly coarse ground to get the porous texture. So grind the dhaliya to a coarse paste. As it is soaked it grinds too fast to a fine paste.

3. Do not retain the batter after the day it ferments, it gets sour very fast.
