Broken Wheat Idli Godhumai Rava Idli Recipe

Broken Wheat Idli Godhumai Rava Idli Recipe

Wheat rava or broken wheat is called ‘dalia’ in hindi and ‘godhuma rava’ in telugu.this instant dalia idli is a steamed preparation that requires no fermentation. You have to mix everything together.

Allow wheat rava idli batter to sit for few minutes for the flavours to meld, pour the batter into greased idli plates or cups and steam it up till it is done.
Sour curd lends a subtle tangy flavour while fresh green chillies and ginger spice up the idli.
Coriander leaves add a fresh colour and gives a pleasant flavour.
The tempering of spices like mustard seeds, aromatic curry leaves and asafoetida in ghee pulls it all together.You can add some roasted cashew nuts along with the tempering.
