Well, you love idlis, but what if you have no batter on hand? here is a quick and equally tasty (in fact, spicier!) version of idlis made with semolina. Since the batter requires no fermentation, this recipe is a quick-fix! for extra zing, add a little grated ginger to this dish.

very tasty. i used to make rava idli plain. the addition of both dals made it different. addition of beans and carrot can make it healthier.
