Dotted with vibrantly coloured, assorted veggies, this soft and sumptuous rava idli is a perfect dish to start your day with. The mild tanginess of curds and subtle notes of chilli paste make the Vegetable Rava Idli very flavourful, while veggies like sweet corn and carrot offer soft, juicy breaks in every mouthful. The Vegetable Rava Idli combines perfectly with this traditional Coconut Chutney, which gets an amazing flavour and wonderful aroma from the tempering. To save time on a busy morning, you can prepare the chutney the previous night and refrigerate. You can prepare the whole chutney recipe the previous day, or you can just grind the mixture and keep it ready. You can add the tempering just before serving for a fresh touch.
