This wheat rava Idli has been sleeping in my blog for almost an year!![Must have been waiting for Roma's event :)]
Wheat is a good alternative for diabetics and weight-watchers.So when you feel guilty eating rice products,this is every healthy alternative.Curd is used in this recipe but can be substituted with curd prepared from low fat/skim milk.Moreover ,when u are tired of eating idlis [no matter how soft or fluffy they are you do get bored sometime..],this is an excellent choice.Okay,this also comes in handy if you want to surprise your surprise guests with a quick and tasty[and healthy] breakfast.
Here is what you need:
Wheat rava - 2 cups
Urad dhal,whole- 1/2 a cup
Curd-2 cups or more
Salt to taste
Mustard- 1 teaspoon
Channa dal-1 teaspoon
Curry leaves- a few
Fried cashew /groundnuts- 1 tablespoon,broken into bits.
Soak urad dhal for 1/2 an hour,drain and grind it adding very less water.Keep aside.
Heat a pan and roast the wheat rava for a few minutes till a nice aroma arises.
In a big bowl,put in the roasted rava,ground urad dhal,salt,fried cashew/groundnuts.
Heat oil in a pan and put in the seasonings and when done pour into the bowl.
Mix well and add curd.and let it rest for 15 minutes.
Check the batter now,if it is too dry add more curd.[The quantity of curd will vary with the quality of the wheat rava.]
The batter should neither be too thick or too watery.
After another 15 minutes ,grease idli moulds and pour a ladle full of batter into each mould and steam till done.[Approx 15 minutes].
Insert a knife/skewer into the idli's.If they come out clean ,the idli's are done.
