How to Make Simple Rava Idlis

  • Soak the gram dal in 1 cup of water and drain.
  • Mix the curd with about half cup of water.
  • Lightly roast the semolina in a heavy bottomed vessel on a low flame stirring continuously. Cool.
  • Heat the oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds.
  • When they begin to splutter add the chopped green chilies, curry leaves and gram dal.
  • Fry for 5 minutes. Cool completely.
  • Add this mixture to the roasted semolina.
  • Blend with the beaten curd and mix well to make a slightly thick batter.
  • Leave this to ferment for about 6 to 7 hours.
  • An hour before steaming the idlis, add the cooking soda.
  • Add salt when just about to make the idlis.
  • Serve with coconut chutney.
  • To Steam the Idlis:
  • Grease the idli moulds well with oil.
  • Put a ladle full of batter into each mould.
  • Heat about 1 to 1 ½ glasses of water in a big vessel.
  • When the water starts to boil, put the idlis to steam.
  • They should be one in about 10 minutes.
  • Insert a knife to check whether done.
  • If the knife comes out clean, the idlis are ready.
