Rava Idli

Today is the third day oh my posting for Blogging Marathon#20 with the theme Low Cal/Low fat breakfast and rava idli is one of that. Though Sometimes I do buy the store bought mix, but this recipe from Tarla Dalal  is very easy to prepare and very tasty too.

Rava           2 1/2 cups
Buttermilk   4 cups
Oil              3tbsp

Black gram dal     1tsp
Bengal gram dal    1tsp
Curry leaves         few
Green chillies        2
Fruit  salt            1tbsp

Mix the rava, buttermillk, oil and salt together in a bowl.Let it rest for 30 mins
Heat the oil for tempering and add the mustard seeds. Once it crackles add all other ingredients under tempering and pour it over the mixed batter,
Grease the idli mould and keep it ready
Add fruit salt to the batter and sprinkle a little war water on it. It will start bubbling, now mix the batter gently
