Regular idli made of rice is fermented and needs a pre-planned effort to prepare the dish. However, Vegetable Rava idli is more of an instant preparation that is filling and nutritious for your toddlers.

Prep Time: 20 mins

  • 1 tsp chana dal
  • 1 tsp jeera
  • 2-3 curry leaves
  • ghee/oil  for tempering
  • salt to taste


  1. Dry roast rava on a medium flame for 10 mins and put it in a bowl. The color changes to light brown. Let it cool.
  2. Then add the curd and mix well and keep it aside for 4-5  hrs, if u like to have the idli a bit sour. But you can make it instantly too. 
  3. After 5 hrs, put little more water to adjust the consistency of the batter. Add mixed grated vegetables, chopped green chili, minced ginger, salt, and mix.
  4. In a pan, put 2-3 tsp of ghee. Once hot, put mustard, when it splutters, put cashews broken, chana dal, jeera, and curry leaves and pour this tadka onto the batter and mix well.
