DIRECTIONS

  • In a heavy bottom pan, heat the oil and add mustard seeds.
  • When it starts to splutter, add jeera.
  • After a few seconds, add urad dal and stir it till it becomes light brown.
  • Add hing and immediately add the rava and saute it till it becomes light brown and loses it raw smell.
  • Let this cool.
  • Beat yoghurt in a mixing bowl and add salt, chilies, curry leaves and ginger.
  • Add the cooled rava mixture to this and add water as necessary so that the batter is of idli batter consistency.
  • When ready to make idlis, mix the eno fruit salt with the mixture and immediately pour into the the greased idli stand.
  • Pressure cook for 7-8 minutes without the weight.
  • Soft, delicious idlis are ready to eat with coconut chutney, madras powder, sambar or even yoghurt!
  • Note: If keeping the idli mixture for a while, it will get thicker as the rava soaks up the water, so you may have to water it down a little bit before pouring.
  • You can add shredded carrots, zucchini, cashew pieces etc to the idli mix to make it even more interesting.
  • This took me about 1 hour from scratch but if you want to reduce the time, you can fry the rava beforehand.
  • Makes around 20 idlis.
