vegetable idli recipe | veg idli | instant veg rava idli with detailed photo and video recipe. an interesting and unique way of preparing the instant idli recipe with rava and veggies. traditionally idli’s are made with the combination of rice and urad dal batter which eventually yields white coloured dumplings. but it can also be made with semolina batter to which finely chopped veggies are added and steamed with the same procedure.
vegetable idli recipevegetable idli recipe | veg idli | instant veg rava idli with step by step photo and video recipe. idli recipes have been a staple breakfast and snack from south indian cuisine. it can be made with myriad ingredients even though the traditional recipes were made with just 2 ingredients. instant veg rava idli is one such new variation, hugely popular in urban cities as it is a one-pot meal and does not need any side dish in particular.

well, the recipe of vegetable idli recipe is almost very similar to the popular south india rava idli recipe. in other words, the only difference between these 2 recipes is the use of finely chopped veggies in this recipe. to be honest, i personally like veg idli recipe as it makes it a complete meal. basically, you do not have to plan for an extra side dish with this idli. the fried veggies add a sufficient amount of flavour and taste and thus making it a complete meal. having said that i like with spicy coconut based idli chutney and do not bother to make any sambar for this. but certainly, taste’s great when served with choice of sambar or even plain dal soup.

furthermore, some of the easy and important tips, suggestions and variations for a perfect vegetable idli recipe. firstly, you should always use bombay rava or medium semolina for this recipe. do not try or attempt it with fine or thick semolina and you would not achieve the same result with these types. secondly, as a matter of fact, you can have the same veggies topping for almost all idli variations. this includes idli recipes made using rice and urad dal combination. lastly, i always recommend using eno fruit salt for hasting the fermentation process. do not use baking soda or baking powder as it may react with turmeric and may yield red colour to the idli.
