Rawa Idly

Rava Idly is an easy breakfast dish. It is very easier than the conventional idly which requires soaking , grinding, fermenting,etc. It is one of the instant breakfast variety we can do and get more appreciations from our family. I hope you will love the taste of this recipe.

your postings are too good. i was searching for a website , for bramins samayal. here i can see almost all the recipes.. keep posting. i will also share this website to my friends :-)

Hi Mami

Did you add tumeric? It looks yellow. Please let me know


which rawa should we use is it fine rawa or coarse rawa...

Hi, we have to use the upma rawa which is coarse

Hi, I have not added any turmeric. Since we are frying the rawa in ghee, it used to be slight dull white only. The yellow color in the photo is because i clicked it in night and the light flashed.

Wonderful recipe. I found some heart shaped Idli Plates when am searching for my kitchen appliances and found this product http://www.infinityappliances.com/product.php. I tried this recipe with this plates and got great complement from my family.. Kids were enjoyed the shape..

Mami we dnt have to add eno fruit salt as many web sites has included the same and i tried with fruit salt

Archana, we can use eno salt or normal bi-carbonate of soda / baking salt.

without eno fruit salt the idlies are very hard even after soaking half n hour..Eno fruit salt usage is best option.

What is gun powder? Is it chutney powder?
