Rava Idli Recipe | How to make Idli recipe | Instant Semolina Idli


Rava Idli | Instant Rava Idli Recipe is an easy breakfast recipe made using Rava (Sooji / semolina). It is very easier to make than the conventional Idli which requires soaking, grinding and fermenting. It is the instant breakfast variety. We will be using the Rava (Sooji) and Yogurt as the main ingredient to make this recipe. We also need to add Baking Soda or Eno Salt to get the softer Idli. The conventional Idli batter will be fermented overnight and so they will be soft by themselves. On the other hand, this Rava Idli is instant so just adding baking soda (or) Eno salt will give fluffiness to the Idli. We can also add veggies like peas, chopped spinach, beans etc.

Serve the hot Instant Rava Idli with Tiffin sambar ,Chutney or Idli Podi.
