Rava idlis have a unique taste that cannot be described easily, it feels spongy, light and has a soft texture that make them even tastier with every bite. This recipe makes 16 idlis of medium size So here is the recipe...

  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 chopped green chillies
  • 1 spring curry leaves
  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • a pinch of hing
  • 1 tbsp fruit salt or ENO
  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • salt to taste
