Few month back when I was looking for some breakfast recipes I come across rava idli recipe. As i love idli, I thought to give a try. When I prepare it, I was completely in love with Rava Idli. Now it is one of the breakfast item at my home.

Coriander leaves: 1 tbsp( finely chopped)
Mustard seed: 1 tsp
Chana/gram dal: 3/4 tsp
Green chilli: 1/2 tsp(finely chopped)
Curry leaves: 2-4 (optional)

  2. Add the rava and stir fry for 2-3 mins on medium heat. Keep aside and cool.
  3. Add grated carrot, coriander leaves, curd, water and salt and mix well.
