 Rava Idli | Sooji Idli

Rawa idli / sooji idli

Rava idli/sooji idli is a slight variation of typical south Indian idli variety where rice and dhal are replaced with rawa/sooji. Unlike regular idli, rava idli doesn't require any fermentation. However, I recommend you to give it at least 30 mins resting period before steaming to get soft fluffy idlis. Check out how to make this yummy rava idli below.


Rava /Sooji -2 cups
Curd -1 1/2 -2 cups (add as required )
Mustard seeds-1 tsp
Urad dhal -1 tsp 
Bengal gram dhal -1 tsp
Ginger -1-inch piece finely chopped
Green chillies -2 nos finely chopped
Coriander leaves and curry leaves few finely chopped
Cooking soda -1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil -2 tsps


👉Dry roast the rava for a minute (do not burn the rava), transfer to a mixing bowl allow it to cool a bit.
👉Heat oil in a tadka pan, add mustard seeds, urad dal,bengal gram dhal, curry leaves allow it to splutter, next add green chillies, ginger saute well. Add this to roasted rava.

👉Now add curd (add in batches as required) ,salt,cooking soda ,chopped coriander leaves  to the bowl and mix everything well to idli batter consistency. Set aside for atleast 15-30 mins.If it needs more curd add now .

👉Grease the idli plates with oil,pour a laddle full of batter in each mould.

👉Steam the rava idlis for 10 minutes.
