Grind the soaked rice using little by little water till paste and remove from the mixi. Add salt to it.
Remove from the jar.
Now apply oil on Idli plates and place a spoon full of ground boiled rice dough and pressure cook or cook in idli vessel for 30 minutes.  Place 2 to 3 idlies in the shavige mould and press on the plate to get the shavige.  Redo the same for the rest of the idlies. Serve Ottu Shavige with coconut chutney or  Sambaar.  You can have Ottu shavige with Mango Rasayana or  banana Rasayana or Tengina Haalu. ( Fresh Coconut Milk with Jaggery).

Note : Make sure, the idlies are cooked before putting into the  shavige mould. ( Poke the other end of the spoon to the cooked idli . If it does not stick to the side of the spoon its confirmed they are cooked. Other wise you need to cook them for at least 10 more minutes).
