  3. Meanwhile put the soaked rice with enough water and grind it to a smooth paste and transfer it to a large bowl. Now grind the grated coconut, 1 tbsp sugar, cooked rice and salt with enough water to a smooth paste. Make sure that the batter is not too watery. It should be lightly thinner than an idli batter.
  4. Combine this to the ground rice batter. Once the yeast is foamy, add it to the batter. Give it a good mix. Cover let it ferment for 7-8 hours.
  5. After the batter has fermented and risen, add 1/4 tsp cardamom powder and the remaining 2 tbsp sugar to the batter. Mix well.
  6. Switch on the pot/ idli maker for steaming. Smear ghee/oil on the idli moulds and pour the batter into it each of the them. Garnish with raisins.
  7. Steam for 12-15 minutes on medium flame. Let it cool for 10 minutes and transfer to a serving dish.
