Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Collect all the ingredients on the kitchen counter before you start making the Idlis.
Step 2
Heat a non-stick pan and dry roast the Semolina Flour (1 cup) until golden. Collect in a bowl and keep aside to cool.
Step 3
In the same pan, heat the Frying Oil (1 tsp) and add Mustard Seeds (1 tsp) , broken Dried Chili Peppers (2) , Asafoetida (1/2 tsp) and Curry Leaves (2 sprigs) and wait till they splutter/crackle.
Step 4
Now add Dried Chickpeas (2 Tbsp) and roast until golden. Collect and keep aside.
Step 5
Whisk Dahi (1/2 cup) and add in roasted semolina with the tempering. Combine to make a thick batter.
Step 6
Set aside for 30 minutes so that the semolina soaks and softens.
Step 7
Now add Baking Soda (3/4 tsp) , Fresh Ginger (1/2 in) , Fresh Cilantro (1 Tbsp) , Granulated Sugar (1/2 tsp) , and Salt (to taste) . Add little water and combine to make a flowing batter. I also added Ghee (1 tsp) to get rustic flavor and aroma.
Step 8
Take an Idli maker stand and grease the sections with oil.
Step 9
Pour the batter onto each section and steam the Idlis in a steamer for 12-15 minutes.
Step 10
Turn off the gas and let the Idli rest for 5 minutes before you take them off from the stand.
Step 11
Now carefully take out the Idlis by running a knife on sides. Plate the hot and fluffy Rawa Idlis in a plate and serve hot with green chili and coconut chutney.
