I must thank my neighbour for introducing idli rava to me . I dint know that there is something called idli rava unless she told me. She used to tell me to try idli rava once but i was hesitant because idli is our staple food and i dint want to take risk using idli rava.Then she gave me some to taste and after that i started making it in my kitchen. Now i am very much comfortable with this idli rava idli.We can make crispy dosas too.U could have tasted this type of idlies in restaurants.But in this method, idli wont be crumbly/coarse like in hotels.First thing i liked in this method is very less soaking time , just 45 mins is sufficient..It takes the soaking time of urad dal.Total process (soaking + grinding) takes 1 hour.But it needs minimum 12 - 15 hrs of fermentation time.I grind the batter in the afternoon ( around 2 pm) & make idlies the next day morning (7 am).The batter will be fermented well.Second good thing is i grind the batter in mixie ( NO grinder cleaning ).I have shared a Full video recipe on how to make these idlis.Please have a look.
Enjoy this easy Idli recipe for your breakfast !
