South Indian cuisine is known for its healthy recipes and rava idli (suji idli) is one of the simple recipes which combines the goodness of many dals and spices. Rava idli is a popular BREAKFAST FOOD that originated in the Tiffin centers of Karnataka. Rava, also known as suji in Hindi and cream of wheat or semolina in English, is simply granulated wheat. This popular variation is made with semolina, curd and some basic spices, which is different from the traditional idli made with fermented rice and lentil batter. The batter is made by just tempering the ingredients & then mixing them up with yogurt which makes it more flavourful and also gives this soft idli a bite. You can make it even more healthy by adding vegetables into the batter. Add grated carrots, as it adds a great texture to the Sooji idlis. You can even substitute carrots with any vegetables of your choice such as corn, peas, beetroot, etc.
