Melt in the mouth Rava Idli and tangy tomato onion chutney.

The rava idli recipe is from the blog, Jeyashri's Kitchen...and the tomato onion chutney is from Edible Garden(

The rava idli recipe asks for many more ingredients in the mix,but I stuck to mustard and urad dal family's crinkly nose,being the sole reason :)

Ok here goes..
Rava idli
1/ 2 cup of rava/semolina
1/4 cup of curd
Salt to taste
Eno Fruit Salt 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice 1/2 tsp
Water as needed
Urad dal 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp
Oil 2 tsp

Heat oil in a kadai and splutter the mustard seeds...add urad dal and fry till golden ..add in the rava and saute for a min .
Take off heat and add lemon juice and salt.
Let the mix cool
Add curd and mix.add water to make it reach an idli batter consistency.
Make sure the idli moulds are oiled and the water for steaming idlis is boiling.
Now add the eno fruit salt and mix well...immedielty pour into the moulds and steam for 7 to 9 mins.
Unmould as you do with idlis.
Serve hottttt.

Tomato onion chutney
Two large onions chopped
1 tomato chopped
4 to 5 red chillies
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 tsp hing or asefoetida
Salt to taste
Oil to saute ,approx 2 tsp
Heat oil and add the chopped onions,garlic,red chillies and hing.
Fry till done(till raw smell goes away)
Add the chopped tomatoes and salt and saute till the tomatoes turn mushy.

This combination is very tasty...but do try this pataka chutney with crisp dosas too.... :D
