We used to always have Rawa Idli's at Adigas. Adigas at Bangalore is the only place where I love to have South Indian Food.If you happen to go there, you will hardly get a place to sit.
One fine day I was so tired and I wanted to try something easy. Checked my fridge and luckily found a cup of curds and some veges. Had Rawa/Sooji in my pantry. Thought of trying something new. Tried these Rawa Idli's and believe me, they turned out superb. They are fast and easy to cook.
My hubby loved them and hubby was surprised, because I was damn tired after returning home from office. This was the first time that I prepared Rawa Idlis from scratch. Prior to this I used to get a packet of MTR Rawa Idli's mix. But now I found the secret behind these Instant Rawa Idli's.
1 cup rawa/sooji
1 cup curd
1 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 cup grated carrots
1/2 cup onion cup length wise
1/4 cup finely chopped capsicum
Handful of chopped coriander leaves
10 curry leaves
1 tsp urad dal
1/4 tsp cooking soda
Home-made ghee for greasing the idli moulds
Roast the rawa on gas till a nice aroma comes from it.Let it cool for sometime.
Mix the rawa and curd, add soda to it and keep aside.
The batter consistency should be like normal idli batter.
In a pan, add oil and to it add mustard seeds.
After the stop spluttering, add curry leaves and urad dal.
Fry for a minute and add onions and fry.
After the onion turns pinkish, add the other vegetables and fry for sometime.
Sprinkle coriander leaves over it.
Switch off the gas and let it cool.
Grease the idlis moulds with home-made ghee. Add sufficient quantity of idli batter to it and cook them in a idli cooker.
