Previously i had posted recipe for plain idli. In this post i would like to share recipe on rava idli which could define more healthier version. Unlike other idli’s rava idli doesnt need soaking, grinding and fermentation process. Very quick and healthy breakfast that you can prepare instantly.
2 cups of rava 1 potato cubed 1 carrot finely grated 1/2 cup peas 1 tsp finely minced ginger 1/2 cup yogurt mix with 1 1/2 cup water 1 tsp mustard seeds 1 tsp black split grams (urad dal) 1 tsp roasted chana dal 1 tsp cumin seeds 1 green chili finely chopped salt to taste 4 tbsp Oil or ghee
Preparation method :
Dry roast rava (semolina) first and let it cool.
Mix with 4 tbsp of ghee or more as needed with rava. When you squeezed the flour you should able to hold it for some time. Rest for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile you can prepare other ingredients such as potato cubed thinly, carrot grated, peas drained from can, minced ginger and thinly slice chili.
Mix yogurt with water to get buttermilk.
Add all the vegetables ; carrot, potato, peas, ginger and chili. Here i use 1 green chili since my son will eat too. If you prefer more spicy, may add more green chili’s. Another thing, i did not add cashews as well, since adding peas.
Add buttermilk and mix well. Check on consistency. The batter should not be too thick. Add water if necessary.
Heat 1 tbsp of oil in pan. Temper mustard seeds, roasted gram and cumin seeds to splutter. Add to the batter. Mix well.
Steam for 20 minutes at least to get soft, scrumptious rava idli’s. Enjoy with coconut chutney!
