This thing of deliciousness happened in a jiffy. Like, may be in just half an hour. Do you remember cucumber sweet idli that I posted few years back? It needed rice soaked for an hour prior. Which is what I wanted to overcome..I mean SOAKING TIME. So the magic of cucumber rava idli happened right today when something delicious, aromatic and savory was desperately needed. Because it’s WEEKEND guys. I get too excited to cook something interesting on weekends sometimes. It is just one such weekend.
Currently I call this cucumber rava idli as STAR of breakfasts where I just have to spare 30 minutes from start to end. On top of that since it’s rava/semolina which is replacing rice from it’s counterpart traditional recipe, the idli never turns sticky. So guess what! Completely non sticky, cucumber aroma overflowing, mildly spicy, amazing idli on your plate.
I would insist you guys! You need to try this foolproof recipe at least once. You can serve this cucumber rava idli with plain ghee or with spicy coconut chutney. Both taste equally yummy. My recommendations for side dish would be something spicy chutney or sambar or curry. Those of you who don’t like spicy combo, then try ghee.
