Rava Idli


Rava idli is one of my favourite South Indian breakfast.  It is very easy to make & taste great with grated carrot and green peas.  Healthy & wholesome meal for kids lunchbox too.  No need to ferment and the preparation time is just 20 mins.  Serve them hot with spicy tomato chutney or with your desired chutney.
