Product Description

Semolina Cake Mix (Rava Idli)

200g by Gits.

Ready to cook savoury semolina cake dry mix.

An alternative to the steamed rice-lentil idli, Rava Idli is made from semolina tempered with spices, blended with yoghurt and steamed.

Idli's are a traditional breakfast of South Indian origin,

If you don't have a traditional idli cooker don't worry, good results can be made with using a muffin tray (fairy cake tray) and steaming in a wok. Use a steamer large enough for your cake tray or place the cake tin in a colander and steam like you would vegetables in a wok.  Alternatively try baking them.

Ingredients: semolina (wheat) and lentil flour, hydrogenated vegetable oil (palmolein oil, sesame oil), bengal gram, salt, raising agents (citric acid, sodium bicarbonate), dehydrated green chillies, dehydrated curry leaves, preservative: butylated hydroxy anisole.


  • 1) Put to boil approx. 1ltr water in a large steaming vessel or pressure cooker. Mix contents of this pack with 300ml water. Stir to smooth batter and set aside for 10mins.
  • 2) Lightly grease mould with oil. Stir batter gently and pour thin layer into each mould. 
  • 3) Place Idli mould tray inside vessel. Cover and steam on high heat for 15mins.
  • 4) Serve steaming hot, fluffy side up.

Alternatively try baking.
