Instant Wheat Rava Idli
Instant Wheat Rava Idli with Peanut Chutney
After trying out Wheat Rava - Vermicelli Idli, I wanted to try with just the Wheat Rava and found it pretty good. When I told my sister of this variation, she was skeptical and was wondering if it would taste like the regular Rava Idli

It worked out for us so try a small batch and check out if works out for you as well. That was what I told her. So check it out for Day 2 of BM #16.

Ingredients - 

Wheat Rava (fine) 2 cups
Carrots grated 1/2 cup (Use more vegetables finely chopped)
Green Chillies 1-2 (or as per taste)
Coconut grated 1-2 Tbsp (Optional)
Coriander Leaves few
Peanuts or Cashews or any nuts crushed 2 Tbsp (Optional)
Water 2 cups
Yogurt/Curds 1/2 cup (Optional)
Seasoning (Oil 1 Tbsp, Chana Dal 1 Tbsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, Jeera 1/2 tsp, Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp)

Note - 
More Buttermilk/beaten curds can be used instead of water.

Wheat Rava

Method Of Preparation -

In a heated wok/kadai add oil and the seasoning. After the mustard seeds splutter, saute the grated carrots and any other vegetables using.

Coarse grind green chillies, coconut, nuts and coriander leaves.

Add the green chilli mixture to the sauteed carrots and mix in the wheat rava.

Roast the mixture for about 5 min. Add salt to taste, remove from fire. This mixture can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for up to a month.

Add 2 cups of water, cover and set aside for 30 min. (I also tried soaking overnight for a quick breakfast in the morning and it was good either way!)

After the water is almost absorbed, if needed add a little yogurt or more water to make the mixture come together.

Grease the idli plates and pour ladle full of the mixture in each slot and steam for 10-15 min.

Unmould and serve with your favorite chutney.

  33. Very healthy looking idlies but I was wondering will they be as soft as rava idly as you have not used any raising agent like eno or soda ? please do clarify as I want to try them ASAP


  34. Harini R Says:
  35. @Padmaja - The idlis do come out soft. But if you prefer fluffy idlis, then you might want to add a pinch of soda. But for us this texture worked out fine.
