Rava Idli

Ingredients:

2 cups medium sized Semolina / Sajjige

1/2 tsp Black Gram seeds

1/2 tsp Mustard seeds

1 tsp Bengal Gram seeds

1.5-2 tsp broken Cashew nuts

Small piece of Ginger

6-7 Curry leaves

2-3 Green Chillies

Pinch of Baking powder

4-5 strands of Coriander leaves

2.5 - 3 cups Curd

Salt to taste

2-3 tsp Oil

Recipe:

Chop green chillies, ginger, curry leaves into small pieces as shown in the picture below.

Put oil, mustard seeds, black gram seeds, bengal gram seeds, cashew nuts in a thick bottomed vessel and fry. Once it starts spluttering add chopped green chillies, ginger, curry leaves and fry them for few seconds. Add semolina and fry them for about 5-6 mins in medium flame until it starts giving nice aroma. Let it cool to room temperature. 

Add  this fried semolina in a vessel. Add salt, baking soda and mix well. Add 1 cup of curd and mix well. Add chopped coriander leaves and mix well. Add remaining curd and mix well. The consistency of the batter should be that of thick milkshake.
Wash Idli holders/cups and fill each of them with 3/4 full of batter. Steam cook Idlis for about 20-30 mins. (Don't put the weight, place one steel glass over the weight stand). Let them cool down a bit before you serve.
Serve them hot with any Sambar, Chutney. The above mentioned ingredients will serve around  10-12 Idlis.

@Sandya..
For Rava Idli.. we need to use the medium sized Semolina... If we use Sanna Rave/Chiroti Rave.. Idli becomes sticky....
