Rava Idly is very much similar to kanchipuram idly.only difference is its instant.... and its made of rava :)
I love rava uppuma so much that i usually have rava at home but my hubby hates uppuma( little seceret is.... i make uppuma when my hubby is not around.... heeheehee).so only way of using the rava which is buy is rava idly.But before my marriage making rava idly was like writing a exam .... then my cousin Shobana, who ia a very good cook, taught me the secret of making perfect rava idly. And here is the recipe.....

Carrot (grated)– 2 tbs
Cashew (chopped) – 1 tsp
Urad – ½ tsp
Bengal gram – 1 tsp

3)Let it cool and add this rava mixture along with soda bi carb, and salt with sour curds .
