With its brilliant flavour and nice, flaky texture, Rava Idli is something like upma in idli form, so you get the best of both worlds. Since it is steamed, it is easier to digest than upma, has a convenient form factor for serving as well as packing, and stays soft and humid for longer. The batter for this is a mixture of rava and curds with a traditional tempering that imparts an enjoyable flavour to the idlis. This Quick Rava Idli does not require any fermentation and will come in very handy when you do not have batter or enough time to prepare anything else in the morning to pack in the tiffin box! You can ready the batter and the idlis fast, and your kids will also really enjoy this yummy treat. For a crunchy bite along with the idlis you can pack a few Cheese Chilli Frisbees in another tiffin.

- Just before steaming, add the fruit salt and 2 tsp of water over the batter.
- When the bubbles form, mix gently.
- Pour a little batter into each greased idli mould and steam in a steamer for 7 to 8 minutes or till the idlis are cooked.
- Allow them to cool completely, pack in an air-tight tiffin box, with the coconut chutney in a separate air-tight box.
