Instant Rava Idli.

Instant Rava Idli is the best and healthy breakfast. Idli use to be only breakfast dish before in my house but nowadays it has taken the place in lunch, dinner and even evening snacks too. I'm a very big fan of idlis because there is no oil or any masala and they taste great without chutney too. Here in England I'm not able to make over night idli or dosa batter because of the horrible climate, since last 4days it is continuously raining. Keeping this climate in my mind I came up with instant idea using little bit of active yeast.. I know it wont give the same taste but it's better then nothing and I'm happy with it. For this rava idli instead of yeast I have used baking soda and they were very soft and spongy. If your idli is soft and spongy then what else you want.

1 cup rava (sooji)
3/4 cup curd
1/2tsp finely chopped giner
1 small onion, 2 small green chillis (finely chopped)
2tbsp chopped coriander leaves
Pinch of baking soda
1/4cup of water
Salt to taste.

Ingredient's For Tempering
1/4tsp channa dal
1/4tsp urad dal
1/4tsp mustard
Few chopped curry leaves
1tbsp oil.

Cooking Method.
In a big mixing bowl, add rava(sooji), curd, onion, green chilli, ginger, baking soda, salt and water, mix them all together well and set it aside for 10 minutes.
In the mean time heat water in a idli steamer and make tempering using all the tempering ingredients. Then mix the tempering into the rava mixture and give quick stir, add more water if you needed to bring it to the right consistency of idli batter. Now pour the ladle full of idli batter into the idli maker trays and steam them for about 15 to 20 minutes.. Take idlis out.
Serve hot with Coconut Chutney and Sambar.
