Instant Rava Idli-Bangalore darshini style

Instant,healthy and yummy!...This rave idli comes out really soft and spongy and tastes like the one you get in Bengaluru darshini/café.Usually served with bombay sagu/potato gravy and chutney.Healthy and yummy breakfast idea!.We love these kind of quick fixes rite?:-)

You can also cut them into pieces and enjoy your evening snack.

I would say this is one of the best kids recipes/lunch box idea

Common lets try this steamed semolina cakes- soft and healthy

 11/2 cup Rava/Sooji
 11/2 cup plain yogurt/curd
 1 tbspn cashew pieces
 1 String curry leaves chopped
 11/2 tspn  eno fruit salt
 2 tbspn grated carrot
 tomato slice for topping
 1 tbspn oil+1/2 tspn ghee
 1 tspn  mustard seeds

1) Heat oil and ghee in a pan,when hot add mustard seeds,curry leaves,cashew pieces.Then add carrot and semolina.Fry in medium heat for 5 min.

2)Once the mixture is comes to room temperature add salt,curd leave it for 5 min.

3)Add little water(abt 1/4 cup or couple of tbspns) so u get right idli batter consistency.

4)Main step is to add eno fruit salt.This makes idlis soft and fluffy (increase it to 2 tspn if u need more soft)Add it just before u put the batter to idli stand.

4)Grease idli stand with oil,place whole cashews in each and a tomato slice and little cilantro.Then add the batter.Steam it in high for 12-13 min

Tips:Once the idlis are done,leave it in stand for 1 min,then dip spoon in cool water & take off from the moulds(repeat this to all idlis) so it comes off easily without sticking to the idli stands.
4)Enjoy with chutney(click for the recipe) and Bombay sagu(click for the recipe).
