Instant Wheat Rava,Carrot & Oats Idli

Most of our evening dinner goes for salads, soups or Indian foods like adais and dosas apart from idilies coz steamed cooked dishes are not that much welcome,yeah none at home love idlies, after a long hesitation and discussion everyone at home said 'Yes' to some steamed cooked soft fluffy idlies..Instead of making idli batter and fermentation i went for this instant version of healthy idlies with wheat rava,grated carrots and rolled oats for making this soft and healthy idlies..I served this cute soft and healthy idlies along with spicy coconut chutney, for my surprise even my hubby enjoyed having this beautiful, cute looking idlies..

Wheat rava idli

1cup Wheat rava/cracked wheat
1cup Rolled oats
1/4cup Grated carrots
2nos Green chillies (chopped)
1tsp Ginger (grated)
1tsp Eno salt
1cup Sour curd
1tsp Mustard seeds, urad dal +channa dal
2tbsp Coriander leaves (chopped)
Few curry leaves
Salt
Oil

Take the cracked wheat, rolled oats, grated carrots, chopped green chillies,chopped coriander leaves, grated ginger, sour curd with enough salt in a bowl, mix everything well, meanwhile heat enough oil, let crack the mustard seeds, urad dal and channa dal, add the curry leaves finally and drop gently this tempered spices to the already prepared batter, mix well...finally add the eno salt and water to turn the batter as thick idly batter... Grease the idli moulds with oil and pour the idli batter in the moulds, steam cook for 10 minutes in idli cooker..

Enjoy this fluffy idlies with coconut chutney...

Hello Priya,

I was totally impressed by this recipe of your and tried the other day. But they didnt turn out as fluffy as normal idlis. They were rather sticky and rubbery. Can you suggest something so that they come out fluffy next time I make.

Thanks
Soumya

Priya said... Reply To This Comment

Hi Soumya..sorry to know that ur idlies didnt turned out prefect, I think urs would have turned sticky may be coz of oats u used for,skip that part and try to prepare only with wheat rava...if its rubbery means u would have cooked them for a long.. Actually this idlies are tends to be so soft coz of the eno salt we are using in this idlies, hope u used them, else do try with fine grind wheat rava for making this idlies, so that u wont get either sticky or rubbery idlies..

Hi Priya,

I totally love ur recipes! I have just tried 2 breakfast recipes so far & both came out terrific. One was spinach mini dosa & today I tried rawa & oats idli which tasted so yum that my family enjoyed it. Just replaced eno with bkg soda and it was only slightly sticky on the surface, but soft & fluffy & delicious inside...perfect taste, thanks so much for sharing such nice recipes & keep up the good work, im a big fan of ur blog :)
