Rava Idly

I usually buy ready to make rava idly pack and make idllies. This time I wanted to try by myself. Learned it from Gayathri's Check how to do? blog in which she has collected a handfull of useful videos. Here is the recipe I followed.

  1. Rava (coarse sooji) - 2 cups
  2. Curd - 1 cup
  3. Water - 1 1/4 cup (or required amount)
  4. Oil - 2 tbsp
  5. Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
  6. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
  7. Ginger - 1 tsp
  8. Channa dhall - 1 tsp
  9. Urad dhall - 1 tsp
  10. Red chillies - 1
  11. Cashew - 1 tsp
  12. Curry leaves - few
  13. Green chillies - 1 tsp
  14. Salt to taste
  15. Coriander leaves - to garnish.

Pre heat a drop of oil, roast sooji till it becomes pinkish brown. Let it cool. In the mean time, pre heat remaining oil, splutter mustard seeds, add channa dhall, red chillies, urad dhall, asafoetida powder and fry it till golden brown. Add it to the roasted sooji. Mix finely chopped green chillies, ginger, curry leaves and coriander leaves with curd. Mix it well. Add it to sooji. Add salt and required amount of water to bring it to idly batter consistency. Keep it aside for an hour to two. When you are ready to make idllies, spray oil in idly moulds, pour laddle full of batter in it and steam cook it for 20 mts. Serve it hot with some chutney.
