Rava Idli (Semolina Steamed Cake)

Idli is very popular tiffin/breakfast in South India. Rava/Semolina/Sooji Idli (Semolina steamed cake) is very famous in South India. Its very tasty. Its one of the favourite tiffin/breakfast in my house. My mom usually makes it in Bangalore, but she uses cooking soda in it.

Rava/Semolina/Sooji - 1 1/2 cup
Curds/Plain Yogurt - 1 cup + extra if required
Eno - 1/2 tspn

Oil - 1 tspn
Mustard - 1/4 tspn
Urad Dal/Channa Dal - 1/2 tspn
Asafotida/Hing - a pinch
Curry leaves - 1 tspn(chopped)

Garnishing Choice (Optional)
Grated Carrot
Chopped coriander
Cashews - few
Sliced Tomato - few(Optional)

Preparation Method
Heat kadai/wok, add oil, mustard wait till it splutters, then add dals and hing saute till brown. Add curry leaves and saute.
Add rava and roast till brown.
Transfer it in a bowl and allow it to cool.
Add curds, salt and mix slowly in one direction without forming lumps. It should be thick batter. If required can add just little water.
Finally add eno salt, mix and leave it for 10 minutes.

Grease Idli plates with little oil. You can garnish now.
Pour the batter slowly in the idli plate.

Steam it for 12-15mins.

Soft and fluffy Rava Idli is ready to enjoy.

You can serve with Coconut Chutney or Potato Sagu.
