Rawa Idli Recipe

September 9, 2011

Ingredients

1 cup Rava (medium thickness)
2-3  Finely chopped green chillies
1 tea spoon Channa Dal
3/4 cup Grated carrot
1/2 teaspoon Mustard seeds
1/4 teaspoon Soda
1 tablespoon Cashews  (adds a little zing to the dish)
1/2 teaspoon Ginger paste
2 tablespoon Freshly grated coconut
2-3 strands Coriander leaves
1 cup Yogurt or curd
1-2 tbl spoon Oil
Salt to taste

How to make Rawa Idli

  • Heat the oil and add mustard seeds.
  • When they start popping, add ginger paste, green chillies, channa dal and allow them to splutter for sometime.
  • Reduce the heat and immediately add rava, mix well.
  • Add salt, soda, carrot, coriander leaves, coconut, curd and mix well.
  • Leave it for around 30 mins ( something like fermenting).
  • Smear the idli cups with a little oil or wet it with water. this will prevent the idlies from sticking to the surface
  • and helps in easy clean-up.
  • Keep one full cashew at the center of every cup and then pour the mixture on top ( so that, when the idlies are removed, the
  • cashew can be seen on the top).
  • Steam for around 12-15 mins ina pressure cooker (Just like the cooking time of normal idlies).
  • Serve hot.
