Instant Poha Idli, Aval Idli recipe with step by step photos

Like Poha idli :

  1. Idli is a popular South-Indian breakfast recipe. The authentic ones are made using rice and urad dal but, they can be made with most dals and also, fortified with veggies. Our website has more than 150 idli recipe variations. Aside from instant poha idli | instant avalakki idli | instant aval idli | how to make instant poha idli listing down some of my personal favorites:

For the batter of instant poha idli

  1. To make the batter for instant poha idli, place the raw rice in a deep bowl. We have used raw rice.
  2. Clean and wash the rice well.
  3. Drain the rice and add poha. Poha help in making soft and fluffy idlis. We have used the thick (jada) variety of poha.
  4. Submerge in enough water and soak for 2 hours.
  5. After 2 hours, drain the rice-poha well.
  6. Place the urad dal in a deep bowl
  7. Add the fenugreek seeds. It aids in the fermentation process.
  8. Clean and pick the urad dal and wash the urad dal thoroughly.
  9. Soak with enough water for at least 2 hours.
  10. After 2 hours, drain well.
  11. Transfer the rice-poha mixture in a mixer jar.
  12. Add ½ cup of water.
  13. Blend everything till smooth and remove in a bowl.
  14. In the mixer jar, add the urad dal, fenugreek seeds and approx. ¼ cup of water. 
  15. Blend till smooth. Check once in between and feel the texture between your finger and grind accordingly. It won’t be very smooth as we are using urad dal but, it won’t be coarse like rice also.
  16. To make the aval idli batter, combine the two ground mixtures using a round ladle.
  17. Add the curd and salt. While we have used fresh curd for this recipe, you can even make use of sour curd to get a pleasant flavour.
  18. Mix very well using your hands or a wired whisk and our instant poha idli batter is now ready. Ensure there are no lumps and the batter has an idli batter consistency i.e it is thick yet flowing.

How to steam no fermentation poha idli

  1. To make the instant poha idli, grease the idli moulds with oil or ghee.
  2. Also, pour water into a steamer or pressure cooker for boiling.
  3. Just before steaming the avalakki idli, add the fruit salt to the batter. This being an instant idli recipe, we won’t be fermenting the batter and to still have that soft, spongy texture we will be adding little fruit salt.
  4. Add 2 tsp of water and mix gently. If you mix vigorously, the aeration from batter will escape making the instant poha idli dense. You will notice the batter is light and fluffy.
  5. Put spoonfuls of batter into greased idli moulds. Do not overfill as the aval idlis would require space to rise & the mould might get messy if you fill it till brim.
  6. Prepare all the idli plates like this.
  7. Steam in a steamer for 10 to 12 minutes on a medium flame. Always steam the idlis on medium heat to get soft idlis.
  8. After steaming, prick a toothpick, if it comes clean it means it’s done and our instant poha idlis are ready to serve.
  9. Allow the  instant aval idli to cool a bit and then remove from molds using a spoon or knife. Dip the knife in oil or spoon with sharp edge in water if you are facing issues while removing the instant poha idli.
  10. Repeat with the remaining batter to make more instant poha idlis.
  11. Serve the instant poha idli ( instant aval idli) hot with sambhar and coconut chutney.
  12. Instant Bread Idli, Palak Rava Idli Recipe, Stuffed Rava Idli Vegetable Sandwich are some other idli recipes that does not require fermentation and can be made quickly.
