Idli rice is a type of short-grain rice that is commonly used to make idlis, a popular South Indian breakfast dish. It is also known as parboiled rice or puzhungal arisi in Tamil. Idli rice is distinct from other types of rice because it is parboiled, which means the rice is partially boiled with the husk still on, then dried and dehusked. This process results in a firmer, more resilient grain that is better suited for making idlis, which require a soft yet firm texture. Idli rice is usually soaked, ground into a batter, and fermented before being steamed into idlis. It is also used to make other South Indian dishes such as dosas and uttapams.
