Instant Rawa Idli

This is my fav all time recipe Rawa Idli family just loves to have this with Sambar...I tend to use both Eno fruit salt and soda just because I have noticed justby using Eno its becomes really v v soft the first batch when you steam them but later when steaming the batter again after a while it wonldn't be tht soft ...This is sure to stay very fluffy and soft all the time:)


1 cup fine  Semolina

2 & 1/2 cup Plain yogurt (2 cups thick yogurt  + 1/2 cup water

2 tbsp cashewnuts (opt)

2 tbsp coriander leaves

1/2 tsp Jeera

1/4 heaped tsp Cooking Soda/ Bi Carb soda

1/4 tsp Eno fruit salt

salt to taste

oil for greasing idli plates


  • In pan add oil when it turns out hot add Jeera then fry well add coriander leaves fry for a minute then add cashews and fry ( I didn't use cashews).
  • Now add semolina and fry on a medium heat well till nice aroma comes out and it becomes little crispy in texture when you feel it. switch off the gas and allow it to cool.
  • Now get the steamer ready and grease the Idli moulds with little oil  and keep it ready. Switch on the gas and keep the idli steamer on high.
  • Beat yogurt add salt to taste , water beat well with the hand beater then add soda and eno and continue beating for 1 min now add this to semolina and mix. Now pour 1 spoon batter in Idli moulds (pour enough water in the vessel ur steaming ) and steam on high flame steam for 10 mins.
  • Cool completely and Remove the Idlis.....Best served with Chutney and Sambar.
