Happiness is

Seeing your idli batter rise up beautifully…

LHB and I mark the batter dabba to check and measure how much it rises after fermentation process.

I don’t know why we use permanent marker. Who cares? Those lines in the dabba reminds me of our experiment 🙂

Green line – Right after I grind 4 cups of rice

From bottom :
1st black line – Right after I grind 6 cups of rice

2nd black line – This time 6 cups of rice gave me that much of batter (more than usual. I wonder how?). May be I finally got the right time and consistency! Phew!

3rd black line – After the batter fermented that too in overnight. Its a medical miracle you know! Usually it takes me more than 1 whole day to ferment.

I left it out for another half a day and that’s the top of the batter you see. Didn’t mark it though!

Ladies and gentlemen -This is true happiness. I can see those who grind idli batter at home nod their head heavily with me (especially those who live in cold weather)
