Rava idli

Rava idli is one of the simple recipe,which is very healthy and takes less time to cook.When I tried istant rava idli mix long back,I was not much satisfied with the outcome.So I thought to give a try at home.Since the batter requires no fermentation,this recipe is a quick-fix. When I tried this recipe first time at home during my in-laws visit,my mother in law and father in law loved this instant rava idli recipe.Even she took recipe from me.Felt very happy.My kids and husband loved to the core.Here goes my recipe
