  • 200 grams Rawa
  • 180 grams Curd
  • 100 ml Water (use as per need)
  • 1 teaspoon Eno Fruit Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Ginger-Green-Chilli Paste
  • Salt to taste
  • ¾ teaspoon Red Chilli Powder
  • 1 tablespoon Mustard Seeds
  • 1 tablespoon White Sesame Seeds
  • 1 pinch Hing
  • 1 ½ tablespoon Oil
  • 10 Curry Leaves
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh Coriander Leaves (chopped finely)
  • 1 Whole Red Chilli


  1. Take the curd in a bowl and whisk to a smooth paste.
  2. Add the rawa and mix it with the curd.

  3. Slowly start adding water little by little to get a smooth lump-free batter of medium consistency, just like idli batter.

  4. Add the salt, red chilli powder and the ginger-green-chilli paste.

  5. Mix well and leave the batter to rest for a minimum of 15 minutes.

  6. The rawa tends to soak the moisture and the batter will thicken up.

  7. Again, add more water to adjust consistency.
