Rava Semiya Idli

Though being a south Indian, idli is something I make very rarely as we are not too fond of it. Whereas idlis with rava or rava and semiya is liked and enjoyed by everyone at home and I make it quite regularly too.

It is less time consuming and does not require a longer fermentation period. This is a instant snack and can be easily prepared when you have guests.
