For this recipe I made the sprouts to a coarse mixture in the blender as I wanted some crunchiness in the idli, but you can make it into fine paste as well and add, remember not to add more water to the paste as it will alter the idli batter consistency. Also make sure to have thick idli batter and if you are look for the recipe here it is Homemade idli batter. So let’s get to the making!
