But if i want to make some breakfast for myself alone, i am happy to give this a go. This is my no fail recipe for rava idli, it turns out to be soft and fluffy. I have already shared a vegetable rava idli recipe in my blog. This is my simple rava idli recipe and it best served with any chutney..

  5. Thanks for the recipe, this turned out awesome.
    The red color was not as even as yours. Wherever red chillies were spread the idlis got reddish tint..otherwise it was yellow.
