- To make kodo millet flour(Varagu Maavu) at home, just wash kodo millet(varagarisi), dry in hot sun and grind in mill. Keeps well for 4 months.
- Prefer banana leaf as it demands less greasing. If using plates, you have to grease for every circle.
- Have 2 plates so that when one is cooking, you shall make the other ready.
- While cutting lengthwise, you shall stack 2-4 circles and do it in one shot.
- You shall spread into thin circles to make thin ada.
- Do check the water level in the idli pot often so that the bottom is not burnt lacking water!
