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.
