This is another variation...recipe courtesy of Shaila kalakonnavar, an awesome cook in my eyes.

Sona masuri rice 4 cups
Urad dal 1 cup
moong dal 1/2 cup
Fenugreek seeds/ Methi 2 tsp

Soak rice in the water for about 4-6 hrs.
Soak urad dal,moong dal and fenugreek seeds together in the water for the same time as rice.
Grind urad dal and methi to a smooth paste and grind rice until it becomes a thick batter. Let it sit undisturbed to ferment.

After fermentation,add salt and mix the batter well.
Grease the idli plated/ mould/cups with oil or use cooking oilspray and pour batter half full in the mould.
Steam in the cooker for 15 mins.
Serve with sambar and chutney.
