Instant Rava Idli | Instant Semolina Idli | Kids Tiffin Box Recipe
Instant rava idli is an easy breakfast and kids tiffin box recipe. This doesn’t require any preparation and takes less than 30 minutes to prepare this.
Also if required you can add lots of veggies to this. Here I have added only tampering of mustard seeds, cumin seeds, curry leaves, ginger and chilies to this.
Add grated carrots, bean and, peas to make this a wholesome healthy breakfast recipe for kids. This is even one of the best finger food for toddlers when they are learning self-feeding.
It’s an easy recipe that has only two primary ingredients. Of course you need to add salt and another tampering as per your taste but still, that is optional.
The only thing required is you need to soak this for some time like 10 to 15 minutes so that semolina will soak up and absorb moisture. This will make idlis soft and fluffy. Also, you can add a little bit of soda or fruit salt (eno) to make the idli softer and fluffier.
