spicy rava cakes
Recipe by Ankayar of Denver, US
The curd has to be only sufficiently sour and the batter has to be real thick, for softer idlies.
Dear Narmadha... You just need to add 1/2 tsp Eno or Baking Soda in it as an additional ingredient.
Why do you want to fry the rava. Add the fried things to rava and mix with curd/ butter milk along with ENO/ soda-bi-carb and then fill it in idli moulds. You get oil free idli in 7-10 mniutes in a pressure cooker without whistle.
u can also add some grated carrot, peas and coriander to the batter to be colourful and it also gives a good taste.
Use Butter milk instead of curd and add some soda by carb and eno.1/8 tsp soda and 1/4 tsp eno will do the trick .
As Indu said the curd has to be sufficiently sour, and you can add a bit of water to the batter just before steaming the idlies, as rawa has a tendency to soak in all the moisture from the curd, once you leave the batter to st for more than 1/2 an hour.
Hi, I think we have to use the soar curd and allow it for 3 to 4 hours for rava to become soft. Then steam it in cooker so that idli will not be hard and it will be tasty
i think we need to add some meetha soda.
hi i made this iddili but it came out very hard. pls let me know what mistake have i done
