POHA IDLI/ INSTANT IDLI WITH POHA AND RAVA

Idlis in breakfast make me happy. I love these steamed savoury cakes more than any other dish. These are light, healthy and tasteful with sambhar and various chutneys. Mostly I add some veggies or green herbs in the idli batter to make them tastier. These are easy to carry, so the best option for the tiffin ideas
These poha idlis are prepared instant. When the fermented rice-lentil batter is not in hand, I prepare instant idlis with any flour. For this poha idli, I had ground dry poha and added some fine rava to make a batter with curd or buttermilk. Baking soda or the fruit salt can be added for instant fermentation. A few fresh green herbs make them so flavoursome. You too must try these idlis in your kitchen
