Rava Idli

Rava idli is one of the easy quickly prepared tiffin, in case we don't have the usual idli dough. It is also tastier and different from normal idli. I guess, it compensates the traditional idlis for the bachelors.

  • Rava- 2 cups
  • Curd- 1 cup
  • Water- 1 cup
  • Green chillies-2
  • Ginger- 1 inch
  • Garlic- 5
  • Grated coconut - 2 tablespoon
  • Grated carrot- 3 tablespoon
  • Soda salt - 1 teaspoon
  • Salt
For seasoning:
  • Oil -2 tablespoon
  • Mustard- 2 teaspoon
  • Urad dal- 2 teaspoon
  • Channa dal - 2 teaspoon
  • Red chilli - 1
  • Asafoetida- pinch
  • Curry leaves

  • Mix a cup of curd with a cup of water and add the chopped green chillies, ginger garlic paste, grated coconut, grated carrot, salt and keep it aside.
  • Heat oil in pan and add all the seasoning items one by one.
  • After the items have been fried to golden brown, add the rava.
  • Fry the rava in medium heat evenly till the raw smell goes off.
  • Now mix the fried items with curd to which the other ingredients are added.
  • Add little water if needed. Take care that the consistency is like that adai dosa(thicker than usual idli dough)
  • Finally dont forget to add the soda salt before cooking.
  • Soda salt should be added only before cooking.
  • Grease the idli plates and pour the dough in it.
  • Cook it in steam for approximately 12- 14 minutes. (or in microwave for 8-9 minutes)
  • Can also be garnished with cashews and carrots before steaming.
