For the final day of 2nd weeks BM 34, I made Instant Rava idly. This recipe need little preparation but very simple  to prepare  can be made in under 45 minutes.  Now no need soak dal  and grind it to ferment. Here is the recipe for Instant Rava idly...

Udad dal 1/2 sp

Curry leaves 3 chopped
Oil 2 sps
Thick curd 1cup
Salt to taste
Cashew nuts 2 sps chopped
Eno fruit salt  1sp / Baking soda 1/2sp

Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds, cashew nuts, curry leaves and chana dal.
Saute and add udad dal and chopped ginger.
Mix well and add sooji.
Cook till the mixture turns light brown on low to medium flame.
Switch off stove and let it cool.
