  • in addition, you can add baking soda in batches and steam them if you preparing in large quantity.
  • furthermore, you can also prepare the batter before in hand and store in fridge. remember just before steaming add baking soda.

  1. Hi hebbars kitchn i tried instant poha rava idli but the attempt was fail. Idli was not vry much soft n sticky. I follow cmplte instructions . Wat wil b reason

    • thats a sad one… hmmm.. i hope u have used idli rava (rice cava) to prepare this poha idli.. and sure that u haven’t used semolina (suji / bombay rava) in preparing it…

    • hi Savita,
      yeah you can prepare the batter before in hand and refrigerate… but make sure to bring your batter to room temperature and add baking soda just before you steam. this helps to make ur idlis soft and spongy

  2. I have lots of poha at home, the thin variety, let me know if curd can be avoided, can I prepare with baking soda. I require to prepare the instant variety for my childrens tiffin.

  6. Hi, I tried the recipe of poha idli, without even adding baking soda, had left it to soak for 15-20 mins more, it had come out very well. Thanks for wonderful recipes 🙂

  7. HI,
    Instead of baking soda,if i use sour curd,just like you use it for rava idli,and let it soak for little more time,will it come equally soft & fluffy? I prefer to skip the soda,as sometimes food items with baking soda gives my child an upset tummy!
