Rava Idli Recipe


Instant rava Idli is loved by everyone. Its not just healthy but tasty too. its the most simple recipe out of south Indian cuisine. Many instant rava idli packets are available in market but making it at home from scratch adds the real flavor.

Its a simple recipe. Just few ingredients and little bit of steaming 🙂

The best part of this recipe is that its instant and does not require overnight soaking and fermentation.

In this recipe I have made idlis two ways. One is using traditional way of keeping idli stand inside cooker for steaming. other is by using microwave. Its just an experiment to show that same batter work both ways. As i have a small daughter so for gas steaming, i have used mini idli moulds. My daughter call these mini idlis as Cute Cakes. So whenever she want to have an idli she will come and say mumma i want cute cakes

It goes best with Sambar and chutneys. For Sambar Recipe CLICK HERE
