RAVA / RAVE IDLY / SEMOLINA IDLY…… DIABETIC FRIENDLY

Posted in : BREAKFAST RECIPES, DIABETIC FRIENDLY RECIPES on by : Divya Suresh

This is not the instant version. Many years ago I tried this recipe of making idly with fermented batter using Semolina / Rava & Broken wheat / Dalia. Since then it has become a regular breakfast dish at my Place.  After this I hardly make instant Rava idly. This also tastes equally good like fermented rice idly . Very rarely one can find the difference !! I make this rava idly using Chiroti rava ( very fine granules ) but can also be made with regular Upma rava. The procedure and the ingredients used are the same as rice idly. Most importantly this is a diabetic friendly recipe. Soon I’ll be posting fermented broken wheat idly also.

 

 

 

        Ingredients : 

  • Semolina / Rava – 1 cup
  • Black lentils / Urad dal – 1/2 cup
  • Fenugreek seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • salt to taste

 

        PROCEDURE :

  • Wash & soak Urad dal and fenugreek seeds for 1 to 2 hours
  • Drain all the water and grind to a fine paste using little water
  • Now you can transfer the urad batter to a container and then you can mix semolina/rava into it and mix it properly    OR 
  • Add semolina / rava and salt to the batter in the jar and grind it once, so that it gets mixed well.
  • Keep it covered for 7 to 8 hours to get fermented, make idly and Serve with any chutney   

 

        For chutney :

Grind together……… using water

  • 1/2 cup grated fresh coconut
  • 20 to 25 nos., curry leaves  (In regular chutney we use 4 to 6 curry leaves, since this is diabetic friendly we are using 20 to 25 or even more)
  • 1/4 cup roasted chana (chutney ka chana)
  • 4 to 6 green chillies
  • Salt to taste
