How to make Poha Buttermilk Idli Recipe

The next step is to temper the buttermilk. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and curry leaves. As soon as it splutters, temper the buttermilk.
Now add poha, suji, rice atta and salt as needed. Mix everything well, so that everything gets incorporated well. The batter may look thin but it will get thick after few hours.
Add chopped coriander, green chillies and grated ginger garlic and mix well.
Cover the bowl with a lid and let it rest overnight or minimum 4 hours. Once the batter is done, stir and mix it vigorously with a ladle or spatula.
Grease the idli molds and put batter generously in each one of them. Steam the idlis in a steamer till it turns fluffy and properly cooked.
