Wheat Rava / Broken Wheat Idly


Rava idly is one of my favorite dishes and I have enjoyed it every time we make it at home. Last time I planned to make them for dinner I just realized I was short of rava and 'BLING' wheat rava was the second option and surprisingly it was yummy too :)

Since these broken wheat are slightly hard we need to give some soaking time for it so that they get soft. These idlies are such a lovely variation to the normal rava idlies or rather a good idea to consume wheat in a different form. :)



Wheat rava (broken wheat) - 2 1/2 cups
Green chilies - 3
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Channa dhall - 2 tsp
Urad dhall - 1 tsp
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Chili powder - 1 tsp
Beaten curd - 3 cups
Salt - for taste
Cooking soda - 1/2 tsp



Chop green chilies into small pieces. 

Take 3 tsps of oil in a pan and crackle mustard seeds followed by urad dhall and channa dhall. Fry until the dhalls are slights browned. Now add chopped green chilies and fry for a min. Add the wheat rava and fry in medium flame for 5 mins. 

Now collect this in a mixing bowl and allow it to come to room temperature. Add salt and cooking soda and mix well. 

Finally add 2 1/2 cups of beaten curd to it and mix until the entire rava mixture is wet and comes to pouring consistency. Allow this to get soaked for 1/2 hour. 

Just  before making the idlies add the remaining 1/2 cup of curd and mix well. 

Grease the idly plates with oil and pour in the batter. Steam cook idlies for 15 mins. 

Enjoy the delicious different idlies with coconut chutney :)

This quantity would be sufficient to make 24-28 idlies.

Looks lovely nithya. I always make idlis with quinoa, cracked wheat. broken wheat, bulgar wheat, fada and all other high fibre lentils and cereals. The formula is the same - curd and seasonings and baking soda...the results are pretty astounding na?
