Rava idli can be made rather quickly as the batter need not be fermented. However, you ought to take into account half an hour’s soaking time. The buttermilk imparts a welcome sourness to the idlis, while the tempering adds to the flavour. Throw in a spoon of cashews with the tempering for a crunchy interlude.
