Rava idli recipe

Method

Heat oil in a kadai /pan, add mustard seeds, when mustard splutters, add hing and urad dal.

When dal changes colour, add cashew nuts, ginger, green chilli and curry leaves.

Then add rava and roast it nicely for a few minutes. Do not burn the rava.

Allow it to cool. After it cools, add curd, finely chopped coriander leaves, carrot, baking soda and needed salt. Add water little by little and mix it well without lumps. The consistency of the rava idli batter should be similar to idli batter.The batter should neither be thick nor thin, so adjust water accordingly.

Let the rava idli batter rest for 15-20 minutes.

Pour it on greased idli moulds and steam cook for 10-15 minutes just as you do for normal idlis.

Serve piping hot with tomato chutney or any chutney of your choice.

  23. Hi! I tried this today. But the idlis are not soft. I didn't put baking soda. I do not know where Iwent wrong..

    ReplyDelete
  24. You have to add baking soda or eno. That is the reason why your idlis are not soft.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Looks yummy.. Can I add baking powder instead of baking soda?

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have not tried adding baking powder, but I think there will not be much difference. You can try and see.

  27. i tried the same procedure, but its very thin / flat,(ubbi / gunda varala), please respond for what could be the mistake

  28. Padmavathi Srinevasan -The curd should be a little sour and baking soda is a must.Probably your batter was too thin. Anyway you will not get like normal idlis but it will be soft and tasty.

  29. Hi Padhu, I had tried this recipe before but every time I prepare this I get a kind of weird taste, may be because of soda, how to avoid that???

    ReplyDelete
  30. Karanth - I have not had this problem before. The reasons for the weird taste of cooking soda or baking soda might be
    1. you have added too much soda.
    2. The product is old stock .
    So buy a good brand next time and try it or you try decreasing the amount of soda bi carb when you prepare next time.
