Idli rice is a short-grain rice that is parboiled, which means it has been partially cooked before it is dried. This process makes the rice more digestible and gives it a slightly chewy texture. Idli rice is typically used to make idli, a steamed cake that is a popular breakfast food in South India. It can also be used to make dosa, a thin pancake that is often served with chutney and sambar.
