Rava Idlis

Delicious rava idlis either plain or with grated vegetables can be enjoyed without adding soda or Eno, as many of us want our children to enjoy such foods without adding any additives . Fermented foods are also easily digested. Many of us think rava idlis must be prepared with only soda or Eno added to give aeration to get fluffy idlis. This is totally wrong and not required except of instant foods .

Instant food especially with idlis is not recommended for regular consumption, so try fermenting the batter which is totally effortless, requires no processing or grinding . All you have to do is soak the roasted fine rava/ sooji with sufficient water and curd combination , to idli batter consistency, for minimum 4 hours .

For those living in cold areas, this batter can be allowed to ferment overnight. The batter will become light and airy and you can see the difference in batter texture after fermenting .
