Plain sooji idli/rava idli/semolina idli
Sooji idli, a quick and simple tea-time snack that is low in fat, this is a perfect option for health conscious people. I’ve used low-fat curds to impart a nice taste and to make the idlis soft. For a wholesome evening snack of just 150 calories, serve three idlis with green chutney, page. . . . Make sure that you make the idlis as soon as you have added the fruit salt to the batter to ensure a fluffy product.
durum semolina flour
(dhania), fresh cilantro, chopped
for tempering and greasing
green chili peppers
Combine the semolina, curds, coriander, salt, green chili and 1 cup of water in a bowl, mix well and keep aside for 10 minutes.
Add fruit salt to the batter and mix well.
Grease the idli moulds with the remaining ¼ teaspoon of oil and pour 2 tbsp of the batter into each idli mould.
Steam in a steamer for 8 to 10 minutes. Serve hot.
Handy tips :
Fruit salt contains sodium so the salt has to added accordingly.
Boil the water in the steamer before putting the idlis to steam.
