Instant Vegetable Rava Idli/ easy to make rava idli

Idli is basically a south Indian breakfast dish which has become popular throughout India. Traditionally it is made from rice and urad dal, which is soaked, ground to a paste, fermented and steamed to form soft and fluffy idlis. This process takes lot of time and needs preparation ahead of time. If you are in a hurry then there is this version of idli which is quick, savory and nutritious as well i. e. vegetable rava idli. It can be served as a snack or appetizer or as a complete breakfast meal. We can call it a complete meal as it contains not only rava, which is a source of carbohydrates, but goodness of vegetables as well.
