Sevai-Rava Idli | Vermicilli-Semolina Idli

Idlis are a saviour both in terms of time and health in my family. I do keep trying different varieties of these steamed delicacies, and today’s dish was more an experiment that everyone loved ! Sevai-Rava Idly, or Vermicilli- Semolina Idli accompanied by Tangy Coriander Chutney made a complete meal by itself. And what’s more, it added a variety of Idly after Toor Dal Idly, Mini Carrot Idly, Pepper IdliPoha Idli etc. Makes for a filling breakfast as well as a healthy lunchbox option.

Off this recipe goes to :
Blogging Marathon under “Meals under 30 mins” & Valli’s Mela under the same name.

The last two days dished under this theme included Poori-Choley & Wholewheat Cheesy Pizza.

Makes 8 – 10 medium sized idlis
  • Vermicilli - Roasted – 1 cup
  • Semolina – ½ cup
  • Yoghurt – 1 cup
  • Ginger – 1 tsp
  • Oil – 2 TBSP
