Oats – Rava Idli


1/2 cup rava/ semolina
1 cup oats ( rolled oats)
1 medium carrot, grated
1 green chilly, seeds removed and finely chopped
1 tbsp curry leaves, finely chopped
1 cup yogurt/ curd
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp urad dal
salt to taste
1/4 tsp eno/ fruit salt
water as required
2 tsp oil


  1. In a pan, dry roast the rava till golden and keep it aside. 
  2. Then dry roast the oats in the same pan for 2 minutes till crisp and blend to a coarse powder like rava.
  3. Heat oil in a pan and splutter mustard seeds and fry the urad dal.
  4. Add the grated carrot, chopped curry leaves and green chillies and saute for 2 minutes.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, add the roasted rava, oats, sauteed carrot mixture and salt and mix well.
  6. Then add the yogurt and mix well. Add in the required water and mix well till you get idli batter consistency. Keep it aside for 10 minutes.
  7. Add the eno to the batter just before preparing the idli and mix well.
  8. Grease the idli moulds with little oil  and pour the idli batter in the moulds.( Here I used triangle shaped idli moulds).

     9. Place them in the steamer, close with a tight lid and steam cook on medium flame for about 15 minutes or until idlis get cooked well.
     10.Remove from the flame and allow to cool. Then remove the idlis from the moulds using the spoon and serve with chutney…..
