Instant Carrot Rava Idli is very quick to make and makes a wonderful picnic dish to pack as well as make a good meal anytime. This Rava Idli takes only 30 mins to get done. And is one of the most delicious dishes you can enjoy a breakfast or dinner.
What was more surprising me was the fact that I am yet to share the regular recipe that Amma makes. Today’s recipe is from our paper clippings on Picnic Hamper, where this Rava Idli is served with this Paruppu Podi. We had made this podi last week and we still have some stocked. When our regular dal podi that Amma makes, got over, we had to make something very quick and this version of Paruppu podi got done.
While I still can’t get over the fact that our staple Rava Idli recipe is not has featured, I am at least glad this one got clicked. I am still upset over the fact that after cooking such an elaborate spread, I couldn’t spend proper time clicking pictures. I wanted to showcase as packed picnic meal. Well, planning went for a toss and it was a hurried click.
As I said yesterday, after making this spread, Amma said I could make such hampers with some handful of dishes to showcase a picnic hamper. I knew that would have been a fantastic idea. It was too late to plan though, so will have this idea for some other time.
The picnic Hamper had Rava Idli, Paruppu Podi, Sambar Sadam with Potato Chips, Seasoned Basmati Curd Rice and Moong Dal Halwa.
