Poha Idli / Instant Poha Idli | South Indian Breakfast Recipes

Being a south indian we love  Idli/Dosa .Sometimes i forget to soak rice and dal for idli/dosa.Few weeks back one of my FB friend Nithya akka shared Aval/Poha idli in her page.Immediately i save the recipe and tried it too.

She said that she tried the recipe from youtube.Here i used Thick Red Aval/Poha hence the colour.

Preparation Time : 15 mins
Cooking Time :6-7 mins
Makes -24

Rice Rava - 1 cup
Red Aval/ Poha -1.5 cups (I used thick )
Sour Curd - 1 cup
Water - 1 cup
Salt - To taste
Baking Powder -3/4 tsp
Baking Soda - 1/4 tsp


*Wash the poha thrice and drain the water .Soak the poha in 1 cup curd for 10mins and also soak the Rice rava in 1 cup water
 *Then just grind the poha in mixie to a smooth paste.Mixed it with soaked rice rava.

*Add salt and mix well again to a thick batter consistency.
*Now heat the idli pot with water and bring to rolling point,place the wet cloth in idli plate or grease the idli plate.

*Now mix the both baking powder and soda at time of making idlies.Now pour a ladle of batter in idli plate,steam it for 6-7 mins.

*Once it cooked,remove the idlies when it is warm.Serve it chutney/sambar.

*Here i served with peanut chutney.


*Here i used thick poha,i have a doubt whether its soaked or not so soaked it in overnight .But Nithya akka said thick/thin aval 10 mins is enough.

*If you are using thin aval/poha no need to grind it,just mashed it well and goahead.

*Make sure that after adding the baking soda and baking powder immediately makes the idlies.

*Instead of baking powder or baking soda you can also use ENO fruit salt.
