it has been a long time and i had not shared any variation to my idli recipes collection. also i was having some unused vermicelli and my husband is not a great fan of vermicelli upma. hence i thought to share some unique idli recipe this time with semiya and i decided to prepare semiya idli recipe. i have prepared this recipe very similar to my previous post of instant rava idli recipe.

even though the preparation of the semiya idli recipe is extremely simple, but few tips and suggestion to make it more perfect. firstly, i have used baking soda to hasten the fermentation process. however if do have a sour curd, baking soda can be completely ignored. secondly, before using semolina and vermicelli i have roasted them to golden brown. to skip this step you can use store bought roasted rava and semiya. lastly, these simple idli can also be extended by adding grated carrots, green peas and onion.

finally i would request you to check my other south indian idli recipes collection from my blog. this includes, idli with idli rava, idli with cooked rice, oats idli, ragi idli, bullet idli, idli pakoda, idli manchurian and stuffed idli recipe. in addition do visit my other recipes collection like,
