Idli is one of my favorite breakfast. This idli with cracked wheat rava, oats and carrot is very nutritious and is loaded with fiber. It makes a filling breakfast or dinner. Today we will learn how to make broken wheat rava oats idli following this easy recipe.
Dry roast oats on medium heat until it is hot to touch. Leave it to cool and then powder it. Dry roast cracked wheat rava (samba godhumai ravai) for 2-3 minutes on low heat and leave it to cool.
Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds, when it splutters, add channa dal and urad dal.
When dal turns golden brown, add finely chopped ginger, green chillies, curry leaves and grated carrot. Saute for a few seconds and remove from heat. Leave it to cool.
In a bowl, mix together, powdered oats, cracked wheat, chopped coriander leaves and the seasoning with the carrots.
Add plain yogurt or curd and salt needed. Mix everything together.
Add water to get an idly batter consistency (neither too thick not too thin). Let it sit for 20-30 minutes. If needed add more water after 30 minutes to get the idly batter consistency.
Add baking soda and mix well. This is optional.
Bring water to boil in an idli pan and pour a small ladle of batter in the greased idli moulds. Steam cook for 25 minutes or until the idli is cooked. This idly will take longer time to get cooked than the regular idlis.
Once done, remove the idlis from the mould and serve hot with any chutney of your choice.
Note - Baking soda is not necessary if you ferment it for 30 minutes. Only if you want to make instant idlis, you need to add baking soda.
