How to make Ragi & Oats Rava Idli Recipe-Finger Millet and Oats Idli
To begin making the Ragi & Oats Rava Idli Recipe, combine the ragi flour, oats, rava, yogurt and a little salt in a large mixing bowl.
Add around one cup of water little at a time to make a thick batter. Allow the mixture to rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
Heat oil in a pan on medium flame, add in the mustard seeds and curry leaves and allow it to crackle. Turn off heat and keep aside.
Once the batter has rested for 15 minutes, adjust the consistency of the batter. It should be that of a thick pouring consistency. Next add in the seasoning, green chillies, ginger, enos fruit salt and the tablespoon of oil. Stir well to combine.
Preheat an idli steamer with enough water. Grease the idli plates.
Pour the Ragi Oats Rava Idli batter into the idli mould cavities. Place into the preheated steamer and steam the idlis for 10-15 minutes until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
Once steamed, remove the Ragi Oats Rava Idli from the steamer and keep aside for 5 minutes. Sprinkle some water over the idli's so they come out clean when you take them out of the cavities. Use a spoon to run through the sides of the cavities to remove idlis.
