Oats- Rava Idli With Veggies

Oats - Rava Idli With Veggies is a recently learnt recipe. I found the recipe in a FB food group (posted by Aparna). I made slight variations to suit our taste buds. 

This idli is a simple, healthy and 'easy to make'. The idlis turned out super soft and I was totally in love with its texture. This is a good way to sneak oats in our diet. Trust me the idlis were so tasty that we finished them at one go, though we were full. Now you know how it might have tasted :-)

You can as well try making the plain version, which I had posted few months back.


  • Quick cooking Oats- 3/4 cup
  • Rava/ Semolina- 3/4 cup
  • Yogurt/ Curd- 3/4 cup
  • Carrot, small sized- 1
  • Cilantro/ Coriander leaves- 5-6 sprigs
  • Frozen Peas- Handful
  • Grated Ginger- 1/4 tsp
  • Cashew nut pieces- As desired
  • Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
  • Green Chilli- 1-2
  • Eno- 1 tsp
  • Salt- To taste
  • Oil- For greasing idli mould


Dry roast the oats and rava separately, for 2-3 minutes or until you get a nice aroma. Then transfer them into a bowl. Mix well. 

Then add in the yogurt, chopped green chillies, turmeric powder and salt. Then add little water at a time to this mixture and mix well, to get a thick (of dropping consistency) batter. I used little more than 3/4 cup of water. Allow the batter to set for 10- 15 minutes.

Meanwhile grate the carrot, ginger and chop the cilantro.

Now add the grated carrot, ginger, Cashew pieces, chopped cilantro and peas to the prepared batter. Mix well. Now the batter is ready.

Now grease the idli moulds using oil. Finally add eno to the batter and mix well. You will see that the batter starts to rise. Pour the batter in each mould idli mould, half way through.

Then steam them in a steamer or pressure cooker (without whistle) for 15 minutes. 

Then allow it to cool for 2-3 minutes. Look how fluffy it is :-)

Oats- Rava Idli With Veggies is ready!!

Serve it hot with coconut chutney, sambhar or any other side dish of your choice. I served it with Pudina Chutney. Above measurement makes 12 large sized idlis.
