Recipe for Rawa Idlis

6 | 20 Minutes | by Nirali Tanna

This is what I make for more kids when they crave for a quick hot snack. Just combine all the ingredients to make a batter and steam it to yield soft fluffy idlis. Tastes best when served with Coconut chutney and Sambhar. If you really don't have the time to make any chutney just stick to a simple green chutney.
