An instant idli recipe that requires no soaking and grinding, the Palak Rava Idli is a nice variant of the regular rava idli.

It is made with a batter of semolina and curds, perked up with an aromatic tempering, and reinforced with a vibrant spinach paste. A pinch of fruit salt helps to give the idli a soft texture and good mouth-feel.

Serve it hot with sambhar and chutney for breakfast or dinner .

This palak idli was so unusual so I decided to make it for my family one day for dinner, they loved it with a hot bowl of sambhar and coconut chutney.
