Rava Idli (Semilona Idli/Pancake)

Till date I've made Rava Idli's with the ready made MTR mix that is available in the stores. This time around, I decided to try making the batter myself based on a recipe I'd read earlier in some blog. So here is how I made it.

  • Rava (Semilona) - 1 cup
  • Onion - 1
  • Green Chilly - 2
  • Curry Leaves - 1 sprig
  • Corriander Leaves - 1 small bunch
  • Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
  • Split Urud Dal - 1 tsp
  • Channa Dal - 1 tsp
  • Cashew nuts - 2 tbsp
  • Oil - 1 tbsp
  • Curd (Yogurt)- 200 ml (maybe lesser, ensure the batter is not too thick or too watery)
  • Salt - to taste
  • Heat oil in a pan.
  • Splutter mustards, urud dal and channa dal.
  • When cooked, add curry leaves and finely chopped green chillies.
  • Add finely chopped onions and fry till translucent.
  • Add cashew nuts and fry them till brown.
  • Add the rava and roast till it starts browning.
  • Add corriander leaves and remove.
  • Let it cool. Add curd (yogurt) and mix well till the batter is in a slightly thick consistency.
  • Ensure the batter does not run too much, else idli's will not get cooked.
  • Set this batter for 60-90 minutes.
  • Steam in your regular idli cooker for 15-20 minutes (depends on the type of cooker you  have).
  • Garnish with shredded carrots and serve with Chutney.
