Rawa Idli (5- Minute Microwave Recipe)

After so many efforts in trying to make the perfect semolina (sooji) idli, finally I followed the recipe which my mom uses and it was a wonderful success. Idli has always been my personal favourite since as long as I remember.. I serve it with Hot and Spicy Sambhar and Coconut Chutney.

I also always save some for the next day to make fried idli and savour it with the Chutney as breakfast.





Ingredients:

Semolina (Sooji): 2 cups
Beaten yogurt: 1 cup
Eno (fruit salt): 2 tsp. (A 50-50 mix of baking soda+baking powder can be used alternatively)
Oil for brushing


  1. Mix the semolina with the yogurt to make it to a paste. It  should neither be too thick nor too runny. Add little water if required. Set aside for an hour.
  2. Add the eno (fruit salt) and mix well. The mixture will start to ferment. Leave for 2-3 minutes. You can use a 50-50 combination of baking soda+baking powder in place of eno.)
  3. Mix the batter lightly but not vigorously. 
  4. Brush the idli stand lightly with oil and fill it up with the batter. Don't fill it up completely because the idlis will expand. Fill them about half.
  5. Fill water in the base and cover. Microwave for 5 minutes on normal. Remove lid carefully (because of the steam) and let the idlis cool on the stand itself. You can separate all the plates from the stand and keep aside.
  6. After 5 minutes, remove carefully from the plates and serve hot with sambhar and coconut chutney.

    1. Hi Cashu, yes you can prepare these idlis in your regular steamer on stove top too, it would take about 6-7 minutes.
