Rava Idli is a favourite at home and an easy to prepare breakfast, especially when you want something instant. I have tried different recipes for making Rava Idlis, but today stumbled upon this recipe for rava idlis on rakskitchen. Raks made the idlis using Eno (fruit salt) and they looked really soft. I must admit that they did turn out fluffy and tasty too.

This is what you’ll need

Rava: 1 cup

Yoghurt: 1/2 cup

Eno fruit salt: 1tsp

Green chillies: 1tsp (finely chopped)

Ginger: 1tsp (grated)

Coriander leaves: 1tbsp (chopped)

Curry leaves: 8-10 (chopped)

Carrot: 1 (grated)

Lemon juice: 1/2tsp

Water: 1/2 cup (adjust to get required consistency)

Salt to taste


Mustard seeds: 1tsp

Udad dal: 1tsp

Cashew nuts: 1 tbsp (chopped)

Ghee: 1tbsp

Let’s get cooking

1. Heat the ghee in a pan and season with the ingredients listed under seasoning.

2. Once it sputters, add the green chilli and ginger.

3. Add the rava, curry leaves and coriander leaves and fry for a few minutes, taking care that the rava does not discolour.

4. Remove from flame and when slightly cool add the rest of the ingredients, except ENO and mix well. The consistency of the batter should be like idli batter, light and loose.

5. Just before pouring into the idli moulds, add the fruit salt. the mixture will start to bubble. Pour into greased idli moulds and steam for 6-8 minutes or until done.

6. Serve hot with chutney or sambhar.

Approximate preparation and cooking time: 30 minutes

Serves: 4
