Rava idli (with vegetables)

       I have made this particular idlis so many times. I mean this is the basic recipe responsible for all the variations of idlis posted here before. Also I thought of posting this one as I took step by step pictures for the first time. We have always enjoyed this for our weekend dinners. Its easy to make too!!

Notes– You can make it without the vegetables too. I have update dthe pictures of rava idlis without the vegetables.
