Then add idli Rava. Once the idli Rava is well roasted, add the vegetables and water. Once the rava is cooked, cool it.
Make a ball of the rava, and make a small depression on it. Take a steamer or idli vessel. Once the water boils, place the Rava balls and steam it until the Rava is cooked well.
Serve hot. You can serve it with chutney powder , or red chutney or pickle children love it with jaggery and butter .
Smear oil on the surface of the steamer or the idli vessel before placing the rava ball in it so that the rava ball doesn't stick to the surface of the vessel .
