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.
