Spicy Corn and Cabbage Rava Idlis

The rava idlis I generally make are not idlis but flat and soggy I have to tell everyone home that they are idlis. Get the picture?  Isn’t it a reasonable expectation that  I want idlis that are nice and fluffy, not soggy at all. But now twice I have managed to make decent rava idlis.  The first being instant ragi Idli from Sowmya’s Blog and the second one is this one here.

Actually, this one is copied from the Tupperware Flyer my friend is a Tupperware distributor. Every month she regularly gave me the flyer with the hope I will buy something. She also knows that I look at only the recipes shared there  😀

The main ingredients of Spicy Corn and Cabbage Rava Idlis are of course corn, cabbage, rava or semolina, buttermilk, Eno fruit salt (do not use cooking soda the results are disastrous) and tempering ingredients namely oil, mustard, hing/asafoetida, urid dal. You can use hot and sweet sauce too I have included it in the ingredients but have not used it.

The regular and not so regular Idlis I have tried are

    Addition of hot and sweet sauce is different, it will give a nice taste to the idlis. I add different vegetables, will try adding the sauce next time.
