HOW TO FERMENT THE BATTER IN INSTANT POT?


 

Fermenting batter is difficult in colder places like the US, especially during the winter months. But guess what Using InstantPot it come to the rescue.

I used to have a hard time getting the batter right. Sometimes it would not ferment and rise enough, and at other times it would be perfect, keeping me wondering what went wrong. But eventually now I can make perfect batter every time.

Today I am sharing one more method of fermenting Idli batter using the Instant pot. Yes, you read that right…you can ferment batter in instant pot. Mix the rice and urad dal batter very well. Add salt and mix thoroughly using a wooden spatula. Place the batter in the inner pot and place the Instant pot in the “yogurt” setting on Normal for 8 hours.
Ensure that the vent is left open for the Yogurt mode.

 

Using the Instant Pot YOGURT mode is a great idea. With an insulated case, the temperature is maintained for the time we need, giving great results irrespective of outside temperature.

NOTE: i removed instant pot sealing and use Instant pot lid or you can Use normal lid to cover that lets a little air through.if its doesn’t ferment then put on low settings for 1-2 hrs more.

In the 8 hours, the batter would have become lighter and doubled in volume as it ferments and you can tell that from the smell too. Now you are all set to cook the batter for some soft and Spongy Soft Idli
