Corn Idlis

Two comments on what is a idli maker. I just saw this comment now, so clarifying. It is a huge vessel like a pasta maker/cooker...once inch water in the bottom and a built-in stand with cups which acts as a mould. The vessel will be available in Indian Stores. On Amazon one can order the microwave idli stand. Idlis are very healthy as they get fermented so rich in vitamin A. Best wishes...

I have the same questions btmailman has. Someone help us out. Can't rate because I haven't tried it. Dietitian comment: Here is a link to wikipedia description of idli with a photo of the idli pan. If you google [INVALID]idlis mold[INVALID] you can find more sources to learn more about the preparation.

Hi, what is an idlis mo(u)ld and what can be used if someone doesn't have one? what does steam and cook mean? (there's no instruction to add liquid and cover?)
