Rava Idli/ Sooji idli

 Including rice in every meals is not that good for health right?.  So just replaced rice with rava. The taste was really good. The texture was very soft. We loved it.

You will need:

  • 1 cup urad dal
  • 3 cup rava/ sooji
  • ¼ tsp fenugreek seeds (Venthayam in tamil, uluva in malayalam)

Step 1:

Soak the urad dal and fenugreek seeds together for minimum 5 hours. Then grind this to a fine paste by adding water.

Step 2:

After that just mix rava/sooji to the urad dal paste and grind it just for 5 more mins by adding water. By doing this rava will get mixed with urad dal perfectly. You can also mix rava to the urad dal paste using hands.

Step 3:

Allow it to ferment for minimum 8 hours. Grease the idli vessel and make idli's. You will get fluffy and soft idli's. Enjoy with peanut chutney, dal sambhar or with any of your favourite chutney's.

Adding 1 cup of cooked rice will give you soft idli. Specially if you are staying in cold place, add 1 cup of cooked rice.
