Oats Rava Idli

Oats Rava Idli
Rava Idli is a spicy South Indian Breakfast prepared from Semolina | Rava | Sooji. I have modified the recipe by adding oats. The preparation is very similar to Rava Idli. Oats is the only cereal rich in globulin. Oats helps to maintain blood sugar level and satisfies appetite. Oats is highly recommended for diabetic patients. Soluble fibres in oats reduces the risk of heat disease. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing South Indian Oats Rava Idli.
