Frequently Asked Questions

Idli pots are stainless steel cookware specifically designed to cook idli, a popular South Indian dish made from fermented rice batter. They typically consist of a steamer pot with multiple stacking plates that hold the idli batter.

Even Steaming: Idli pots allow for even steaming of the idli batter due to their stacked design, ensuring consistent texture and fluffiness throughout.

Durability: Stainless steel idli pots are known for their longevity and resistance to corrosion.

Easy Cleaning: The smooth surface of stainless steel makes cleaning idli pots relatively simple.

Prepare the idli batter: Follow your preferred recipe for making idli batter.

Grease the idli plates: Apply a thin layer of oil or ghee to the inner surface of each idli mold.

Pour the batter: Fill each mold with the prepared batter, leaving some space for the batter to rise.

Add water to the steamer pot: Fill the bottom pot with enough water to create steam.

Stack the idli plates: Place the filled idli plates on top of the steamer pot.

Steam the idlis: Bring the water in the steamer pot to a boil, then reduce heat and steam the idlis for 10-15 minutes, or until cooked through.

Unmold and serve: Once cooked, carefully remove the idli plates and take out the idlis using a spoon.

Idli pots generally come in two main types:

Traditional Idli Pots: These are the most common type, featuring a single steamer pot with multiple stacking plates. They are available in various sizes, typically ranging from 2 to 7 tiers.

Pressure Cooker Idli Inserts: These are compatible with pressure cookers and allow for faster steaming of idlis.

The price range of Idli Pots in India typically varies between Rs. 1,494.00 and Rs. 4,464.00, depending on the size, material, and brand.

Wash immediately after use: Allow the idli pot to cool slightly, then wash with warm water and soap.

Remove stubborn residue: For any leftover batter, use a soft sponge or brush to gently scrub the affected areas.

Avoid harsh detergents: Avoid using abrasive cleaners or steel wool, as they can scratch the stainless steel surface.

Dry thoroughly: After washing, dry the idli pot completely with a clean cloth to prevent rusting.
