  • Poha/Aval/Beaten Rice- 1 cup
  • Idli Rava - 1.5 cups
  • Curd - 1 cup
  • Baking soda - a pinch optional
  • Water - as required
  • Salt - as required


  • Measure poha, idli rava, and curd. Keep all the ingredients ready. Soak poha in water 5 minute or until soft. I used thick poha variety and it was soft enough to mash with 5 minutes of soaking. Thin variety poha might take a little longer time. Beat the curd and mix soaked poha.
  • Now add idli rava, baking soda (I didn't use) with required salt and mix everything well. Add water and let it sit for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, poha and idli rava absorbed most of the water content. Hence adjust with water to make it idli batter consistency that is neither too thick nor thin.
  • Now start making idlis, pour the batter in each idli mould. Steam it with a cup of water for 10 to 12 minutes in medium flame. Check with a spoon, if it's coming clean, the Idlis are ready! Switch off the flame and remove from the mould.
