Instant Pot idli, Instant pot indian recipes

Idli is a steamed rice cake, one of the traditional breakfast made in South India. It is prepared using homemade / store bought idli batter made with rice and urad dal. Idli in instant pot is just a new way of making idli in electric pressure cooker. All we will get to know in this recipe is how to use the instant pot options to make soft and fluffy idli just like our traditional idli steamer does. Actually to be honest the IP took the same time to steam the idli just like regular idli steamer and I had to babysit the IP and kept a watch on clock as there was no time display in IP steam mode when valve was kept in venting position. But I should say that it did a great job by giving same quality idli as made by idli steamer a neat one. Definitely one of the trusted product to make idli when your idli steamer is busy. But again there will be no time saving. So lets get to the making!
