Rava Idli

Ingredients to make Rava Idli

  • 1 1/4 cup of semolina (Rava)
  • 2 cups of buttermilk (1/2 cup beaten curd+1&1/2 cup water)
  • 1/2 tsp salt or according to taste
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • For tempering:
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 chopped green chilly
  • 1tsp urad dal
  • 1tsp chana dal
  • few curry leaves (curry patta)
  • coconut slices
  • 8-10 cashewnuts
  • For greasing.. 1tsp oil
  • 1 sachet eno fruit salt or 1tbsp eno. to be added in batter

How to make Rava Idli

  1. In a bowl mix together semolina, buttermilk, salt and 1 tbsp oil and keep aside for 30 minutes.
  2. Now after half an hour prepare the tempering. Heat the oil 1 tbsp. Add mustard seeds to it. As they splutter, add urad dal, roast it, add channa dal, roast it. Now add chopped chillies, coconut slices and curry leaves.
  3. Add this tempering to the batter prepared and toss well, add a bit of water to it as well.
  4. Now grease the idli moulds with a little oil.
  5. Ready the idli cooker.
  6. To the batter add eno salt. Give it a slight stir and as it bubbles pour the batter immediately into idli moulds and cook on a slow flame for 8-10 minutes.
  7. Unmould the idlis and enjoy with sambhar and chutney. Garnish with fried cashewnuts

My Tip:

The tempering we have added helps to reduce the tanginess of the curd or buttermilk and enhances the flavour.
