- Heat 1 tsp of oil in a pan and roast the Semolina, until it gives out a nice aroma, Watch the flame. Mix the roasted semolina with the yoghurt and salt.
- If the batter is too thick you can add little more yoghurt or Water. I normally use Thick Buttermilk instead of Yoghurt.
- Heat oil in a pan, splutter mustard seeds, add onion, curry leaves, hing and ginger and saute for a minute. Then add the veggies and saute for 3-4 minutes.
- Next add sambar powder and cover and cook for 5 minutes until the rawness escapes. Once done, remove and add this to the rava batter, Mix well.
- Next add the fruit salt or baking soda to the batter and mix well. Let it sit for 5 minutes.
- Grease the Idly plates and Pour the batter into the moulds and steam cook for 10 minutes in a slow flame.
- When done, Take it out of the steamer, Give it a minute to cool and then unmould. Enjoy with any Spicy Chutney.
