Oats Wheat Rava Idli / Oats Cracked Wheat Idli

Oats Wheat Rava Idli is a quick and easy breakfast or tiffin item. It tastes best when served hot and best accompanied by Sambar, coconut chutney or tomato pickle. This resembles and also tastes like rava idli, but has a lot of goodness attached. A guilt free food. I got this recipe from here.

Oats Godumai Rava Idli - IMG_2218

Oats (quick cooking) – 1 cup
Wheat Ravai / Cracked Wheat – ½  cup
Curd – ¾ cup
Ginger (grated) – 1 tea spoon
Green Chili (minced) – 1 tea spoon
Asafetida – ¼ tea spoon
Salt –1 tea spoon
Curry Leaves – 10
Coriander Leaves – 1 table spoon
Water – 3/4 cup (add slowly)
Eno Fruit Salt – ½ tea spoon
Oil – 1 tea spoon+ few drops to grease idli plates.
MethodDry Roast the oats for 2 – 3 minutes until a nice aroma comes. Set aside to cool and grind to a coarse powder
Heat oil in a pan and sauté the cashew until golden and set aside. In the same pan, add mustard seeds and once it crackles, add cumin seeds and kadalai parupu. Once kadalai parupu becomes light golden, add ulutham parupu and red chili and sauté until the parupu are golden brown. Add green chili, ginger and curry leaves and sauté for 30 seconds and then add the grated carrot and peas and sauté for 2 minutes on medium. Now add the cracked wheat and sauté for a minute more and remove from heat and transfer to the mixing bowl.
In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients except oil, water and ENO and mix thoroughly
Add water slowly and coriander leaves to make a thick batter like idli batter.
Grease the idli plates and set aside. Keep one cashew on each of the plates for decoration
Heat the cooker with water and have everything ready. Now add the ENO to the batter and mix well. Scoop the batter into the idli plates and cook them in the cooker (without weight) for 18 - 25 minutes. This takes longer than idli. Check around 18 minutes once to see if they are done.
Remove once done and serve hot with sambar!!
