Once Upon a time, I thought perfect Rava Idli's came only when I used MTR's Rava Idli Mix. But, that was before I discovered this great receipe. It makes good Rava Idli's every time. Unlike most people, I don't use cooking soda to this receipe. It tastes great and is great to have in hand, when you are hungry and don't have much time to cook. Here's how I do it...
1 cup Rava(sooji)
1 cup Curd
2 tsp Grated coconut
1 Tblsp chopped coriander leaves
salt, to taste
1 tsp Mustard seeds
1/2 tsp Pepper and Cumin seeds(broken roughly)
1 tsp Urad Dal and Chana Dal
4 Green chillies(chopped)
1 inch Ginger(chopped)
1 tsp Curry leaves
1 tsp Cashewnut(chopped)
Grease a plate with little ghee and fry the sooji in a microwave for 3 minutes.
In a pan, add oil and fry the ingredients listed for frying and add it to a bowl with the fried sooji.
Add required amount of salt and curds.
Stir in grated coconut and coriander leaves and mix to a idli-batter consistency.
Pour batter into greased idli plates and cook for 15 minutes or till a tooth pick comes out clean.
Tasty rava idli is ready.
Serve hot with chutney and sambhar.
