Instant Rava Idly~Rawa Idli

by - 12:33 AM

Oh my god... I am shocked to post another dish adding to my breakfast Ballyhoo here. Its been real long that I tried out something real nice because I always tend to save my stomach thirsts with Sandwich, Maggi or with couple of digestives and green tea. 3 days of holidays got my kitchen breathless with repeated bangs and chokes of Seasoning. I cooked elaborate meals right from Breakfast to Dinner and that's least of me.
I love idly especially the one they serve at our cafeteria. It is called Mr and Mrs Idly, this outlet is always busy with people helping themselves with Snow white idlies, Crisp Vadas topped with piping hot sambar and generous amounts of Chutneys. After trying out oats idly, I wanted to explore different versions of Idly without disturbing idly's natural taste. When I tried out this yummy and flavorful idly, I regret as I type that why din't I try this recipe earlier when it doesn't call for anything soaking, grinding and fermenting.
Let me not scold myself anymore.....:)
Here I go with simple and easy to make Rava Idly

Sooji/Semolina/Rawa- 2 cups
Curd- 1 and 1/2 cups

Roasted Cashews/Peanuts - 2 tbsps (broken)
Eno Salt- 1 tsp (plain)
Seasoning-
Green Chillies- 1-2 chopped finely
Mustard seeds- 1 tsp

Procedure:

Add one tbsp of oil in a pan and splutter mustard seeds, curry leaves, ginger and chana dal. Fry for a minute and keep them aside. In the same pan, roast sooji until slightly golden brown in color. It takes about 2-3 mins and take care not to burn sooji.
Take a large bowl and add sooji, seasoning and all the remaining ingredients except eno salt and water. Once you mix curd, check if the consistency is like idly batter. If not add little water to get the consistency. Add chopped coriander and add eno salt. Your mixture is fizzy and becomes frothy. Mix Well.
Grease idly mould with remaining oil and drop half a spoon of  prepared idly batter to the mould.
Place the idly stand in a pressure cooker or in a idly maker. Cook until done. It takes about  8-10 mins not more than that.
Just insert a tooth pick inside, if your tooth pick comes out clean your idlies are done. Else continue for another 3-4 mins.

My Notes:
Do not allow the idly mixture to stand too long after adding Eno Salt. Cooking Soda equally does the job of Eno. So you can bank on it in the absence of Eno.
You can add choice of your veggies to the batter like grated carrot, sweet corn, green peas etc.
Do not over fill the moulds as your idlies tend to fluff up once cooked.
