Don't have idli batter at hand but craving soft, fluffy idlis for breakfast? Worry not, simply follow this easy poha idli recipe and you can enjoy a steaming hot breakfast in just 20 minutes. We're lucky that the idli is such a versatile dish, lending itself to so many variations!

INGREDIENTS

    1 cup beaten rice / poha / avalakki (thin / thick variety )
    1½ cups rice rawa / idli rava
    2 cups sour curd / buttermilk
    Pinch of baking soda / eno fruit salt
    Water as required
    Salt to taste
    Oil to grease idli moulds

DIRECTIONS

Soak 1 cup of poha in curd for 10 – 15 mins or till they turn soft. (rinse the poha with water if it is not clean)
Now mash them nicely using back of your spoon.
Add 1.5 cup of rice rava, 1 cup curd and water as required.
Mix and allow to rest for 10 – 15 mins. Rice rava (idli rava) has to absorb all the water.
Add water to get idli batter consistency. Finally, add some salt to taste.
Just before steaming, add a pinch of baking soda and mix well till it turns frothy.
Brush the plates with oil and pour the batter immediately into the idli plate. Do not rest the batter.
As other idlis, you have to steam it for 8-10 mins on medium flame. aAllow it to rest for 5 mins then unmould.
Serve hot with any chutney of your choice.
