Rava Idiyappam - quick and easy semolina string hopper

The recipe sounded interesting when a friend shared this recipe. Gave it a try and it came out excellent! unlike the usual rice idiyappam (rice string hoppers), this one absolutely require the least amount of labour.  The friend is non other than Chitra Viswanathan lovingly known and called as CV

An excellent dish for a breakfast or evening tiffin when you want to cook in a jiffy or to entertain your unexpected sudden arrival of guests.  No soaking, No Grinding, No hard labour, No Blunders!!!

A best recipe when you feel lazy to cook for yourself.

Rava Idiyappam / Semolina String Hoppers / Rava Seviyan!!!

The recipe is so yummy that even the two 'happy buddhas' are doing a hip hip hurray by raising their hand happily!

You will need :-

  1. Rava - 1 Cup (go for chiroti / fine rava)
  2. Water - 1 Cup
  3. Salt to taste
  4. Oil - 1 tsp
  5. Chakli press with sev mould (murukku achchu with omapodi thattu)
  6. Steamer (I used a idli steamer)
Procedure :-

  • Boil 1 cup water (Please note Boiling hot. Not just hot)
  •  Put rava / semolina in a big mixing bowl, add salt, mix well.
  • Add boiling water to the rava and mix it quickly with a spoon till it becomes a thick dough.
  • Add a tsp of oil and mix it again. 
  • Place the idli steamer with water on the stove. while it is heated up let us get into pressing process.
  • Grease the idli plates applying little oil 
chakli mould with different plates. the last one on the right with many tiny holes is used in this recipe

  • Take the chakli mould, put a lump of dough into it. Presse it (with no effort!) over the greased plates into each depression in a idli plate.
  • Steam for 5 minutes.

  • Yummy, Jiffy idiyappam / ravai sevai ready!
 Serving suggestion :-

  1. sprinkle some grated coconut and sugar on top and have
  2. have with coconut milk sweetened with sugar
  3.  Have with kadalai curry
  4. Have with Peas Curry

Note :-

  1. You can use roasted rava for this recipe.
  2. If the water is not boiling hot, it may not turn out the way it has to be.
  3. Mix till you get the dough otherwise when you press, it may not comes like a string.
