Rava Idli

We are going to Manchester this weekend to visit my husband's brother and his wife. I am looking forward to meet them as its been almost 7 months since we've met them.

I love the Traffod Centre in Manchester. Its one of the most beautiful malls I've seen. We generally go to the mall every time we go to Manchester. How the whole day flies there, I still don't understand. Anyways, its just the weekend we are going for, so there won't be any breaks in blogging (as it is I blog once in 3 - 4 days).

Here's the Rava Idli recipe that I make with my Homemade Mix. Remember the veggies are totally optional. You can add more or avoid them totally. I did not add carrots when I clicked these photos. Hope you enjoy this as much as we enjoy it.

1 cup Homemade Rava Idli Mix
1 cup curd
1 tsp Chilli Paste / 1 Chilli finely chopped
1 tsp Ginger Paste
1 Carrot - grated
1/2 cup Frozen Peas
1 tsp Eno Fruit Salt
Water - as needed
Salt to taste

  1. In a bowl, take the curd and beat it with a fork.
  2. Mix in the Salt, Green Chilli Paste, Ginger, grated Carrot and Peas.
  3. Add the Homemade Rava Idli Mix and mix well so no lumps are formed.
  4. Add water to get the consistency of idli batter. Instead of water, you can also use more curd. Remember that Semolina soaks up a lot of water / curd.
  5. Leave it for about 20 mins to rest.
  6. In the meantime, grease the idli stand with oil.
  7. Add Eno Fruit Salt to the idli batter, mix well and pour into the idli moulds. Do not fill till the top as the idlies will rise.
  8. Steam it for about 20 mins.
  9. Serve hot with chutney or on their own.
