Ingredient List

  • Small check mark in a circle icon 1 cup Pillsbury™ Rava.
  • Small check mark in a circle icon 1 cup Water.
  • Small check mark in a circle icon Oil for greasing the idli stand.


  1. Mix 1 cup Pillsbury™ Rava with 1 cup water and whisk it well.
  2. Allow this mixture to rest for 1 minute. The mixture should neither be too thick nor too thin.
  3. Add 1½ - 2 small glasses of water in the cooker and keep it on a medium flame allowing the water to heat up. In the meantime grease the idli stand with some oil. With the help of a spoon, fill the mixture in each of the idli stand bowls.
  4. Place the idli stand in the cooker and place the lid on it. Make sure to remove the whistle. Allow the idli to steam for around 10-15 minutes.
  5. Open the lid of the cooker to check if the idli is cooked properly by inserting a toothpick inside the idli. If the mixture does not stick to its surface, then the idli is ready.
  6. Let it cool for 2-3 minutes and scoop the idli from the bowls with the help of a spoon.
  7. Pillsbury Instant Mix Rava Idli’s are now ready. Serve them with sambar, coconut chutney and red tomato garlic chutney.


  • You can have some variations by adding grated carrot, capsicum finely chopped and oil crackled mustard seed in the batter.
