Well, this dish is well known among South Indian breakfast lovers and it goes on well with coconut chutney and Bombay saagu. If  you are not ready with the idli batter but if it is on your priority list, then you are on the right page because I will be posting this instant  rava idli without any fermentation. Here, we mix medium rava ( semolina ) with curds and steam it in the idli cooker for soft and fluffy idlis. Idlis are one of the healthiest breakfast for all the ages -  old, young, kids and even for the sick ones since we steam it.

Kitchenmasti Points :

  1. Always use curds for soft and fluffy idlis. Never substitute curds with water.
  2. After adding eno's salt, steam it immediately.
  3. You can add grated carrots in the batter for an attractive color but it is optional.
  4. See to it that the curd is not too sour, or you may end up with sour idlis.
  5. You can substitute eno's salt for baking soda.
