Boiled Rice Idli ( ಕೊಚ್ಚಕ್ಕಿ ಗಿಡ್ಡೆ )

Boiled rice idli is one of the traditional dish of South Canara.
We call this idli as Kochige Gidde. Boiled rice idlis are good for breakfast and Snack in the evenings. No need of urid dal or fermentation for this type of idli.


I have used only boiled rice (boiled rice from South Canara), fresh grated coconut.
Kochige gidde can be prepared using raw rice and boiled rice also.
It is always better to soak boiled rice in boiling water, so that the rice will be well soaked and grinding becomes very easy. Fresh coconut adds to the taste and gidde taste yummy.
Let us see the recipe now :

Things  Needed

Boiled Rice : 2 Cups
Coconut : 1 Full cup ( 1/2 Coconut )
Salt : To taste

 Method :

1. Wash and soak boiled rice in boiling water for over night or 5 to 6 hours.

2. Grate coconut and keep it aside.
3. Drain all the water from soaked rice and grind it with grated coconut.Let it be like medium size rava consistency. Add required water while grinding.

 4. Remove the batter from the mixi jar and add salt. Mix it well.

5. Wash idli plates and apply oil/ghee to each idli mould.
6. Mix the batter nicely and pour a ladle of idli batter to each idli mould.
7. Keep a pressure cooker/idli cooker on the fire. Put some water. Let it get heated.
8. Arrange the idli plates and keep it in the cooker and cook for 20 to 25 minutes.
9. Remove the idlis from the idli plates and put it in a serving dish.


10.Serve hot boiled rice idli with ghee/coconut oil and jaggery/any side dish of your choice.

 Note :

 The batter need not be fermented. No need to use any urid dal. You can grind the batter at night and keep it in the fridge. Use of more coconut not only adds to the taste, it also helps the idli to be soft. These idlis are not that soft as normal urdi dal idlis.
Time :  5 to 6 Hours to soak the rice + 5 minutes to grind (Mixi jar) + 25 minutes to cook
Serves : 3 to 4 .

Quick Avalakki Idli ( Without Urid Dal).

When you crave to eat idli in the moring, when you do not have fermented idli batter, when your urid dal stock finished, you have no patience to soak and grind idli batter I think you can try and enjoy this Quick Avalakki Idli. ( with out Urid dal).

Here I have tried Avalakki Idli and it has no urid dal or no fermentation either. Just used rice rava, curd and avalakki/poha/aval/atukalu.
Idli is one of the best breakfast food that every one agrees I think. I do love idli and prepare varieties of idli for breakfast/snack time or even dinner. I do prefer idli because it is steamed and very little oil/ghee is used in the whole process. (Just to apply for idli plates ghee/oil is used).
Varieties of idli can be prepared namely, urid idli, dal idli, pumpkin idli, jack fruit idly, mango idli and so many varieties and so many shapes.

Let us see this idli recipe now :

Things you need :

Idli Rava/Akki Idli Rava : 2 Cups

Curd : 1 Cup

Idli plates /Any cooker container
Idli cooker /Pressure cooker ( I have used Pressure Cooker).

2. Wash rice rava and drain all the water and let it rest.

3. Now grind avalakki till it turn paste or rava consistency.

4. Remove from the mixi jar and put it in a big bowl.

5. Add rice rava with ground avalakki, add salt and leave it for 5 to 10 minutes.
6. Put little water in the pressure cooker and keep it on fire.
7. Wash idli plates and apply ghee/oil to each mould in idli plate. Keep them ready.
8.  Now add a teaspoon of Eno salt to rice rava, avalakki, curd mixture and mix it well.


9.  Add a teaspoon of Eno Salt and stir the batter nicely. Mix it again and take a ladle and pour idli batter to each idli mould.

10. Arrange the idli plates with idli batter and keep it in a pressure cooker/idli cooker.

14. Put all the idli in a serving dish and serve with chutney /sambar/pickle or any other side dish.

15. Add a spoon of ghee just before serving.


Note :

Idli batter should be loose, add water if required. ( Do not make the batter watery, idli may not turn as fluffy).
Add Eno salt at last just before you put idli batter in idli plate. No need to rest the batter after adding Eno Salt. ( They might turn hard and will not be fluffy if you allow the batter to rest after adding Eno salt).
Adding thin avalakki is optional. Use thick curd to mix then use butter milk to dilute the batter. It should be like normal idli batter. (Urid + Rice idli batter). Washing idli rava is optional. 
Time : Preparation : 20 Minutes + Cooking time : 10 Minutes = Total time = 30 minutes.
20 idli can be prepared. ( According to the size ).
