I wanted to try instant oats idly for a long time. I used to make a version of this before,by adding a oats as major part in the rava idly,but when I saw the Instant oats idli at sharmis passions,they looked very tempting to try,more over,I wanted to try godumai rava idly too,and this recipe is a double treat for me as it combines both. I love this recipe very much and this tastes very similar to the usual rava idly,more healthy undoubtedly! I made variations a bit to suit my taste buds and convenience..

  3. Transfer to mixing bowl,add salt,curd,lemon juice,water as required and make a batter,which consistency is similar to our idly batter.(neither too runny nor too thick). Mix well. Add Eno fruit salt just before making idlies and mix well. This will give you a frothy/airy batter which gives a soft spongy idly.

  4. Pour the batter in a greased idly plate and cook just like you cook the regular idlies but for more time,say 10-15 minutes,until done.
    pour in idly mould Done cooking
