Rawa Idli

I usually make Rawa Idli's by using MTR Instant Rawa Idli mix. It tastes very nice. But recently, it came to my mind, why cant i make it from scratch by myself. I searched internet, but was not satisfied. Recently, i was checking one of my blog friend's recipe list and came across the recipe. When i went through the details, i felt its easy and why not give it a try. I ended up making it and yeh...it definetly tasted much better than the instant rawa idli mix which i used to make.

I forward my thanks to my blog friend Raksha for sharing it in her blog.

So here is the recipe for you all. As per the original recipe, i thinly sliced the onion, but i feel that the onions should be finely chopped, which would give a better texture to the idlis. Give it a try and you will stop buying the instant rawa idli mix from the shop.

Made some mini rawa idlis too for my daughters...They loved it....

Mini Rawa Idli


Rawa or Sooji - 1 cup
Curd - 1 and 1/2 cup
Carrot (grated) - 1/2 cup
Capsicum (finely chopped) - 1/2 cup
Onion (finely chopped) - 1 medium
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - 10 to 15 nos
Split urad dal - 1 tsp
Baking Soda - 1/4 tsp
Oil - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves - 3 tbsp


  • Dry roast rawa till it slightly changes its colour and gives a nice aroma.
  • Mix roasted rawa/sooji, curd, salt and baking soda in a bowl and keep this aside. It should have the consistancy of a normal idli batter.
  • Heat oil in a kadai and put mustard seeds in it. When it starts to splutter, add split urad dal and curry leaves.
  • After sometime, add onions, salt and fry till translucent. Then add carrot and capsicum.
  • Let it cook for sometime. Now add coriander leaves and take it off from heat.
  • After cooling for sometime, add it into the batter mix. Stir nicely.
  • Pour it into the idli mould and steam it for about 10 to 15 minutes, till it is nicely set.
  • Take it off from heat, unmould and serve it hot with coconut chutney.
