How to make Rava idli

  1. Heat oil and ghee in kadai. Add the red chillies, cumin seeds and mustard seeds.
  2. Let them splutter. After that add curry leaves.
  3. Once its done, add the suji and mix well.
  4. Keep stirring the suji so that it does not get burn. You have to cook it till the fine aroma of suji comes.
  5. A light change in color is good. Make sure not to cook much as in case of suji halwa.
  6. Switch off the flame and allow it to cool.
  7. Now take the curd in a bowl, add the grated ginger and finely chopped green chillies.
  8. Meanwhile, the sooji has cooled, add it slowly in this curd mixture.
  9. In order to make a fine batter, add some water.
  10. Add salt and a pinch of baking soda and let it sit for approx an hour.
  11. Now grease the idli stands with oil and pour the batter one by one.
  12. Add little water in pressure cooker and switch on the flame. Once the vapour starts coming, put the idli stand in it.
  13. Cover it and cook for 10 min.
  14. Rava idli is ready.

My Tip:

You can add cashew nuts, urad dal and channa dal along with red chillies in the beginning and grated carrots in batter.
