Soft Rava Idlis.


MTR should be the first one to serve Rava Idlis for us . Or else some pack bought from Nilgiris should be the first experience for me. Rava Idli was liked  by all at those times. After that the craze went off and it became an occasional visitor to our house . Depending on the curd available Rava Idli will be decided to be made or not . Day before yesterday i made Rava idli and i decided to  blog. Although i have made this few times i took extra care and made  for the blog purpose (Recipe Idea: Sharmis passion). .
