RAVA IDLI

Rava idlies are the ideal, healthy and filling breakfast. These are quick and super simple easy recipe that can be prepared at any time because this does not require any frementation or soaking process nor any grinding. Some people add grated coconut in the batter. That can be an optional ingredient that may or may not be added according to their choice. You can also make these idlies in microwave for about 10 min. These idlies tastes amazing and it is good for kids those who hates to have veggies specially carrots. This goes well with coconut chutney, onion chutney etc. But I prefer to serve them with peanut chutney.


INGREDIENTS

1 Cup Rava.

1/2 Cup Yogurt.

1/4 Cup Chopped Onions.

1/4 Cup Grated Carrots.

1 tsp Grated Ginger.

1 Green chilli.

1 tsp Mustard seeds.

1 tsp Channa dal.

1 tsp Urad dal.

1 tbsp Chopped Cashew.

1 Sprig Curry leaves.

1/2 Cup Water.

2 tsp Oil.

Salt to taste.

(Extra veggies can also be added.)

METHOD.

Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and allow then to pop. Add channa dal and urad dal and fry them till it turns light brown. Later add grted ginger followed by onions, carrots, green chilli and curry leaves. Fry them for a while.
Add rava and roast it along with the veggie mixture. Transfer them into a bowl and allow it to cool.
Add yogurt, salt, water, cashew and mix them well making sure not to form any lumps. Allow the mixture to stand for half an hour. The consistency must be just like normal idli batter.


Grease idli tray with oil. Put the batter into each mould and steam them for about 10 to 15 min on medium heat.

Allow them to cool when its done. Remove idlies with the help of spoon and serve hot with Peanut chutney.



Enjoy!!
