Instant Rava Idly

imageInstant Rava idly

Instant rava idly is made with sooji/Bombay rava. The idly batter doesn’t require any fermentation. We can prepare the Rava idlies within 45 minutes(Including soaking) of time. While preparing tempering I’ve added chopped mango ginger pieces to enhance the flavour. They are very delicious when served hot with any South Indian chutney. Here I present delightful instant Rava idly which is served as a breakfast or as an evening snack for school going children. Njoy Cooking, Serving n Savoring!
