Instant Jowar Rava Idli

BM #70 Week 1 Day 1 - 

Welcome to another edition of Blogging Marathon where for the first week I have chosen to blog single serving recipes. This is very relevant for food loving single women or bachelors or students etc..

Archana, a fellow BMer posed a question in our group as to how Jowar rava idli can be made. Since I had Jowar rava handy, and I was looking to make a brunch for myself, I thought that was a good idea and immediately started making these idlis and these have become a favorite of mine. Thanks to Archana for the idea.

I made this almost the same way I make the regular Rava Idli or the Wheat Rava Idli. There are many  more types of idlis and are listed here.

Add in salt and remove from heat. Let it cool for a few minutes.

Whisk in yogurt and sprinkle ENO fruit salt and gently mix.

Divide the batter into a idli plate (optionally placing a cashew in each of the mould).

Steam it for 15 minutes. Let it cool for a few minutes.

Unmould and serve it warm with a chutney of your choice.
