How To Make Instant Rava Idli?

I used to hate rava idli as a kid. My mom used to make gits instant rava idli packet. I really hated the taste of it. When I found the recipe on Mullai’s Blog, I decided to give it one try to see if I like it. Tadaaa New love has been found. This recipe is easy to make as well as it is tastier than gits packet. I promise. Try it once and you will never go back to gits packet. Let’s get to the recipe now.

Let’s make this:

  • Heat oil  in a pan, splutter mustard, cumin seeds, bengal gam, split black gram and curry leaves followed by green chilies.
  • Fry these for few seconds.
  • Add the cashews to this and toast for a while.
  • Now add the rava and fry over low flame for 5 minutes until it turns light golden.
  • Remove this mixture and let cool completely.
  • In a bowl , combine curd, water, baking soda and salt.
  • Beat well to blend and then add roasted rava, grated carrot, green peas and chopped coriander leaves.
  • Mix these together to idli batter consistency (You may add little extra water to bring to this consistency).
  • Let it soak for 1/2 hour. I skip this step when I don’t have time and it still works.
  • When done, grease the idli plates and pour a ladleful of batter and steam for 10 minutes.
  • Switch off and let cool for few minutes before you remove from the plates.
  • Enjoy with your family.

As usual, don’t forget to leave me a feedback once you try it. Always remember everything is good in moderation.
