Sooji Idli Recipe: How to Make Easy Rava Idli Recipe?

Sooji idli recipe is an instant version of homemade soft idli which takes at least 1 day to prepare. You can add many variations in this rava idli recipe. Either add some finely chopped veggies of your own choice or just make plain suji idli without adding any veggies or other ingredients.

Instant rava idli is originally a specialty of Karnataka state, and now you can find it across the whole India. A rava idli is served with coconut chutney and sambhar, but if you are making a sooji idli recipe with chopped veggies then you can have it without any sides.

Rava idli is one of the most common recipes at my house. Whenever my mom is out of ideas for breakfast, she thinks of some quick breakfast recipes that require fewer ingredients and also get prepared within minutes. Some of these quick breakfast recipes are rava dosa, khaman dhokla, rava idli, besan bread toast, etc, etc.

In this recipe, I have used ENO fruit salt as a leavening agent, but if it is not easily accessible for you, then you can use  ¼ tsp of baking soda. I use ENO Fruit Salt because it doesn’t leave any weird taste that baking soda or baking powder leaves in your recipe.
