As I have mentioned earlier, I have been following Mrs.Mallika Bhadrinath’s recipe for Rava( semolina) Idli for almost 16 years. I have tried many variations and it has always come out well.
And this was no exception:)
Perfect for breakfast as it has good complex carbohydrates, protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals.
Rava( semolina)- 3/4th cup
Oats- 3/4th cup
Chopped palak( spinach)- 1 cup
Yogurt- 1 and 1/4thcup
Mustard- 1 tsp
Urad dal- 1 tsp
Chana dal- 1 tsp
Hing- 1/4 th tsp
Cooking soda- 1/8th tsp
Salt to taste
Heat oil in a pan.
Add mustard. When it starts spluttering, add urad dal, chana dal and hing.Sauté till the dal becomes golden. Add the chopped palak and sauté till it become almost dry.
Switch off the gas. Add rava and oats and mix well.
Now add well beaten yogurt to this and mix well. Let it rest for 10 mins.
Heat water in a steamer. Grease Idli plates and keep it ready.
Once the water starts steaming, add cooking soda to the batter and mix well. Batter will become light and frothy.
Pour the batter into greased Idli plates and steam for 12-15 mins or till done.
Transfer to a serving plate and serve hot with hot, spicy sambar or chutney:)
