Rava Idli Recipe | Step By Step Pictures

     Rava idli is a renowned breakfast in South India.Rava idli is a type of Instant idli prepared with sooji/cream of wheat.There is no need of grinding or fermentation for making rava idli.To make the  idli fluffy you can add baking soda or eno fruit salt.Without baking soda or eno fruit salt (leavening agents) rava idli is going to be hard and rubbery, as opposed to being soft and spongy.

    This is the softest rava idli recipe with less eno or baking soda.I have used eno fruit salt ,If you only have baking soda replace eno salt with 1/4 to 1/2 tsp baking soda with 1 tsp of lemon juice.I used grated carrots in rava idli,If you don't have carrots or if you want to prepare plain rava idli skip carrots.Check the consistency of idli batter and salt before adding to moulds.
