Black rice or kavuni arisi is a nutrient dense gluten free food obviously less common rice variety but available easily nowadays. This black rice is rich in vitamins, protein and also high in fibre. Still now we always have a comforting satisfaction with normal white rice only and have very limited liking for other healthy coloured rice varieties. But its not at all true these rice are equally tasty to consume and far better than the white rice. We can make this black rice in many forms like pongal,payasam and even puttu or

anything you can imagine with white rice can be done with this incredible black rice. I have made kavuni arisi payasam in my blog the taste was so nice and mesmerizing. We are adding aval for this idli so that it will turn soft and fluffy. Grind the batter to a smooth consistency.The rice should be soaked for long hours so that it grinds smoothly and easily. The idli really turned out to be soft and fluffy like normal idli’s and was so happy with the outcome. Definitely you should try this idli and give me a feed back.

Soaking kavuni rice for longer time make it easier to grind it smoothly. Adding aval makes this idli soft and fluffy. When you dilute it with water u can make dosas it turns out well. It need not be soaked individually it turns out good as per my recipe itself. You can replace kavuni rice with brown rice also.
