For Goli Idli

Add the salt to a pan with boiling water. Now add the rice flour to the pan and stir, mix and cook to make dough on low flame.

Turn the gas off and cover it with a lid and give it rest for at least 5 minute. Then take it out in a mixing bowl or parat. Take some oil in your hands and mix the dough with your hands while it is warm, be careful if it is too hot to handle.
Once a smooth dough is formed, cover it with a wet cloth. Apply some oil at the holding base of a steamer. Take the dough and cut small potions. Roll the portions into ‘Golis’ or balls. Remember, while you are choosing the size of the portions that the size of the balls will double after steaming.
Place these balls in the steamer steam the Idlis for about 10 to 12 mins.
