Instant Rava Idli | Sooji Idli

What to cook is the first question and tough question for me every morning.Most of the time I try to plan 3 meals of the day , the prior night so that I can just go ahead in the morning.This 5 minute plan every night saves huge time , the next day.


Today's plan for breakfast was rava idli and coriander chutney. Since my son loves this idli, once in a week I make this with some variations.


For a quick week night dinner or breakfast,this will be my choice as a complete meal can be prepared in under 30 minutes. This is a basic recipe I'm sharing here.You can make variations by adding grated carrots,coconuts, green peas , corn etc.




Ingredients


Fine rava/sooji.................. 1/2 cup
Yogurt ............................. 1/2 cup, preferably sour
mustard seeds ................ 1 tsp
Urad ............................... 1/2 tsp
Channa Dal ..................... 1/2 tsp
Cashews ......................... 10, broken into pieces
Coriander leaves ............. chopped, Handfull
Salt ................................ 3/4 tsp
Water .............................. 1 1/2 tbsp
Eno , unflavored fruit salt....1/2 tsp
Oil .................................... 1 1/2 tbsp+ few drops 


Method

  1. Heat oil in a shallow pan and add mustard seeds, followed by urad, channa dal, cashews.
  2. Saute for 30 sec until the dals turn golden color.
  3. Add rava and roast for 2 minutes with constant stirring.
  4. The rava should not get burnt but it should have got roasted well.
  5. Take off the heat and let it cool for 3 minutes.
  6. Now add beaten yogurt, salt and coriander leaves and mix well.
  7. Grease the idli plates with oil and get your steamer ready by adding some water and heat it through.
  8. Now add eno to the batter along with water and mix quickly and pour it into moulds.
  9. Steam for 5 to 7 minutes.

Enjoy with a chutney of your choice.

Notes.

  • After adding eno , do not let it stand for long time.
  • Add vegetables like carrots, corn , peas, chopped greens to make it more healthier.
  • If yogurt is not sour , squeeze juice of 1/2 lemon.
