    To make Idlis: Pour some water in an idly vessel and put it on medium flame. Just line a wet cloth on top of the idli plates and ladle out the idli batter on the plates. Put it inside the idly vessel and let it steam for 10 minutes. Remove the idly plate and sprinkle some water over the cooked idlis. Slowly separate the cloth from the idlis. Soft fluffy Idlis are ready to serve. Serve hot with your favorite chutney or sambar.
