Instant Poha Idli

These instant Poha idlies are a life saver when having unexpected guests or when one wants to whip up something instant. Serve them with a coconut chutney or with some Molgapudi.

Ingredients :

1 cup thin/Patla poha /Flattened rice

1.5 cups Idli Rava

1 cup thick sour curd


A big pinch of Baking Soda

Water as required

Powder the Poha and tip it into a vessel. Add the curds and one cup of water. Mix well. Add the Idli rava and another cup of water. Add salt and keep aside for five minutes. Check the consistency. Add more water if required and again allow to stand for five minutes. The batter should neither be too thick nor thin.

Keep the steamer with water boiling ready. Grease the idli stand or the katori with oil. Add the soda to the batter, give it a quick whisk and pour it into the stand or katori. Place in the steamer and steam for ten to twelve minutes. A knife inserted inside the idli should come out clean. Remove from the steamer and allow to cool. Gently prise the idlis with the help of a spoon. Serve with Chutney.
