Rava Idli

Rava Idli  is a well known breakfast dish. We can prepare Rava idli in different ways using different vegetables and spices. I have prepared Rava Idli , using medium sized Samolina (Rave) and some spices.

Rava idli can be eaten with coconut chutney, or any other chutneys, curries, sambar or gojju.(Thick variety of curry).
It is an instant idli and can be prepared with in 20 minutes. Hot idlis should be enjoyed.


Rav:2 cups
Curd: 1 cup
Mustard seeds 1/2 tea spoon
Urad daal: 1/2 tea spoon
Asofotodia(ingh): a Pinch
Curry leaves: 6 to 8
Green chillies: 2
Salt: to taste
Eno salt: 1/2 tea spoon
Oil: 1 tea spoon.


1. Take a pan.Put 1 tea spoon of oil and heat for 2 seconds. Add mustard seeds and urad daal. Fry until mustard seeds splutter.
2. Add asfotodia and curry leaves.( Cut curry leaves into small).
3. Add rava and fry for 5 minutes. Add cut green chillies. Leave it for cooling.
4 Take a bowl. Put curd and add 1/ 2 cup of water. Add salt, cut coriander leaves and grated coconut. Add fried rava, leave it for 10 to 15 minutes.
5. Take idli plates.Apply oil and keep it.
6. Add Eno salt to the ready dough and Put the dough to idli plates.
7. Cook idlis for 8 to 10 minutes in the pressure cooker or idli cooker.(Do not keep weight on the pressure cooker).
8.Now put off the gas. Open the lid of the pressure cooker and take out the ready idli plates.
9. Serve Hot Rava idli with the side dish you have prepared.


You can also add grated carrot and Green peas to the dough while mixing. You can add cut cashew nuts while frying. I have prepared simple idlis. You can enrich the idea and prepare nice rava idli. If you do not have idli plates, use any container which fits inside the cooker and cook idlis.(Cut ready idly according to your wish). Mix Eno when you are about put the dough into idli plates. You can use cooking soda instead Eno Salt. Add a pinch of cooking soda just before you fill idli plates with idli dough.
Time : 25 to 30 minutes.
Serves : 3 to 4
