I usually plan my meals the previous day or a little earlier than a day depending on the vegetables and other things that I need on hand. But there are some days when I just don’t feel like planning anything and go with the flow and make impromptu brekkie or lunch plans with what I have or don’t have.

One such day was when I had nothing but the Ragi Batter from IDFresh and a few other basic things to make chutney inside the fridge. The better half had to rush to office and the only thing I could think of at that moment was ragi idli – well, that’s a bit boring too, so gave it a little twist by adding the humble semolina to it and taking it a notch above 😛

Just roasted the semolina a bit and added it to the ready-made batter, mix, stir and pour. Job done and dusted! Brekkie sorted!

These ready-made stuff are such saviours at times, honestly. The idlis were just right. Not too fluffy not too hard either, probably pairing it with sambar or sagu would’ve made it more easy to consume, but the chutney wasn’t too bad either. Not a bad idea after all on a morning when nothing strikes your brain and all you want to do is make something quick.

Quite filling, nutritious and healthy too. Guess what? You can add a bit of toasted oats too and skip the rava (semolina) if you don’t want it. Pulse the oats and then add it to the batter so that it blends well.

You could use the same batter to make dosa too, and zing it up a bit with cumin, onions , coriander and chillies to make it more flavourful. Because, pouring dosa is easier than steaming idlis (although, these are mini idlis and we were craving for idlis that morning).

If you want a no-onion version just the cumin and coriander with do, but you could add some grated ginger and a pinch of hing as well to give it a flavour burst sans the onions.

These petite idlis are sure to leave you full and satiated and are perfect for those mornings that just don’t let you breathe.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. To begin making the ragi-rave idli start by roasting the semolina if you don;t have the roasted one. On a medium flame, roast until the raw smell goes and it becomes slightly brown.
  2. Mix the semolina with the ID Fresh Ragi idli dosa batter and keep it aside for 5 minutes. ( You can add a pinch of salt if you prefer, I skipped it since the ragi batter is already slightly salted).
  3. Grease the mini idli moulds with vegetable oil and pour the batter. Steam it in a pressure cooker without the whistle for about 15-20 minutes on medium low flame.
Recipe Notes
  • You could use the bigger idli moulds too if you dont have mini idli pans. Just increase the quantity of the batter and the semolina and adjust accordingly. 
  • You can add oats instead of semolina too. 
  • You could use the same batter to make dosa too, and zing it up a bit with cumin, onions , coriander and chillies to make it more flavourful. Because, pouring dosa is easier than steaming idlis (although, these are mini idlis and we were craving for idlis that morning). 
  • If you want a no-onion version just the cumin and coriander with do, but you could add some grated ginger and a pinch of hing as well to give it a flavour burst sans the onions.
