Rava Vermicilli Idli

Guest Author: Mrs Seethalakshmi Suresh

Ingredients :

Rava: 2 cups
Vermicilli: 2 cups
Curd :2 1/2 cups(can add more if the batter becomes very thick and dry )
Soda :A pinch
Salt :1 tsp ( according to taste )
Mustard seed :1 tsp
Udad Dal :1 tsp
Cashews:4-5 broken
Raisins :Few
Oil :2 tsp
Hing :A pinch
Ghee :2 tsp
Green Chillies :2-3 finely chopped or grated
Coriander leaves: 1/4 cup
Curry leaves :Few
OPTIONAL : To add a cup of peas; finely chopped carrot and onion.

Heat 1 tsp ghee in a pan and roast rava till golden brown. Keep aside. Now roast vermicelli in another tsp ghee till golden brown. Allow it to cool a little.
Take a wide mouth bowl. Put the roasted rava and vermicelli in it and add the curd and salt. Mix well and leave it undisturbed for 30 mins. Add more curd if the batter becomes dry or very thick.

Heat a kadai and add 2 tsp oil for tempering. Add mustard seeds, udad dal. When the seeds splutter add curry leaves, green chillies, hing, broken cashews and raisins and saute a little.

Now if you are adding the OPTIONAL items you can add it in the same kadai and saute for a minute.

Take off the kadai from the stove and add all these items in the batter. Add baking soda and coriander leaves and mix well.

Now grease the idli stand with oil and pour this batter in idli moulds and steam for 10-15 minutes as we do for normal idlis. Remove the idli from the idli moulds after 5 minutes.

Tasty Rava Vermicilli idli is ready to be served hot with sambhar or any chutney of your choice.

Hi, when you say rava, is it sooji or idli rava (rice rava). Also could you please tell roughly how many idlis come out with this recipe? Thanks

Thanks all for your comments

@ Desi girl .. this is made with sooji..regd number of idlis, I will contact the guest author and let you know

seethalakshmi said...

Hi Desi Girl,
Rava means sooji & not idli rava.
The said measurement will give you 20-24 idlis..
Thanks, seethalakshmi
