RAVA IDLI RECIPE| INSTANT RAVA IDLY RECIPE


Rava idli
  
I am not a great fan of Rava idli , but a year back when our relatives visited here i made rava idly for them since they loved the soft and spongy rava idlies a lot and i also enjoyed it. I tried this from Raks, and my relatives were totally impressed with the outcome and after that i tried this for many more times. When i made this few weeks back, i decided to blog this recipe of Rava Idli.
This measurement yields approximately 4-5  Rava idlis. Check out my Poha idli  and oats idli. Rava idli tastes great with potato masala. Check out my chutney recipes too.

  • Enjoy with any chutney of your choice.
  • I served with coconut chutney.

  28. Hi
    If I want to make 20 Rava idlis, how much eno fruit salt should I add to the batter?
    Thanks

    1. Hi priya, the recipe i have given yields approx 5 idlis. i have added 1/2 tsp of eno salt for that. For 20 idlis u add 2 tsp of salt. But my idlis are slightly bigger in size as use the big idli pot for making idlis. If using idli cooker small pans add 1 tsp of eno salt.

  29. Thanks Jeyashri. Yesterday I made just 6 idlis for me and my husband and it came out too good. Today I am making it for a friend. Almost 20-25. Thats why I had this doubt. Thanks for the clarification.

  31. Hi Jayashri,

    I tried this recipe today. My Idli's came out a bit hard. Should the rava be roasted well before making this?

    Also, I added the eno salt mixing with the water at the time of making the batter. Not too sure where I went wrong.

    1. the reason may be the idli batter may be too thick. Try adding little more water and try. the eno salt may be less active too

  36. What is Eno Salt..!! May i add cooking soda..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Eno salt is the one which u get in pharmacy and in super markets too. Generally we use this for indigestion or gastric problems. You can add cooking soda, but not too about the results.

      Delete
    2. adding cooking soda makes to retain the soda smell when the idly is cooked it happened to me
