Rava/sooji Idli

Rava idli is simple,easy to make and delicious version of idli. No need to soak,grind and plan in advance. As idli this is specially popular as breakfast item. But sometimes I make it for dinner too. It makes a feeling, healthy with little effort.

1 cup rava/sooji/semolina
1 1/2 cup curd
1/4 cup grated coconut
1 tbsp urad dal
3 green chillies finely chopped
1 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves
1 tomato sliced
1 tbsp cashews
1 tsp grated ginger
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp soda
4-5 tsp oil

  1. Heat oil in kadhai. Add mustard seeds. When they splutter add ginger, green chillies, urad dal. Fry for a minute.
  2. Add rava and fry till it turns light brown.
  3. Switch off the heat.
  4. Let this mixture cool down.
  5. Add curd, grated coconut, soda, coriander leaves and salt. Mix nicely. Consistency of batter should be like normal idli batter. If required add little bit of water.
  6. Let this batter sit for half an hour. 
  7. Grease idli stand with oil. Place tomato slice and cashew in the bottom and then put idli batter on the top in idli plates. This way when idli is removed tomato slices come on the top.
  8. Steam for 10-15 minutes.
Serve hot with chutney and sambar.

Preparation time : 30 minutes.
