Idly recipe using Idly Rava / Idly Batter recipe using Idli Rava

Idly recipe using Idly Rava / Idly Batter recipe using Idli Rava

Idly Rava was very different to me, as I have seen most of them making idly with Idli rava. It was the very first time, sometime ago 11 years, I came to know about Idly rava when I was there in Hyderabad through one of my friend. One day when we were chatting over a tea, she told me that she prepares different batter for Idly and Dosa, at the moment I heard I was shocked and later she told that they prepare idly using idli rava and dosa as the same as we prepare, whereas we prepare a same batter for both Idly and Dosa using Idly rice and urad dal / whole white lentils.

The very next day, she prepared me the idli using idly rava and peanut chutney which perfectly matches it. I and my hubby like it, asked the recipe, prepared by myself, as the process was very easy, takes less time, just you need to soak and grind the white lentils or urad dal or ulundam paruppu and mix it with the Idly rava and ferment it overnight and next day you can have soft and yummy Idlies. Let me share the recipe…

Chicken Noodles Pancake Recipe / Maggi Noodles Recipe / Chicken Pancake recipe

Thought of preparing Maggi – but when there are too many myths revolving around Maggi, few of the people ask me, why do you prepare Maggi, but just like that I ask them Don’t you use Maggi! Personally, I have experienced in my neighborhood grocery shop when I see Maggi getting filled in the racks will be over in few hours and again they fill it, this keeps on going. Maggi is most of the people’s all-time favorite where there is no age restriction right from the toddles till the elders.

Balanced diet is one which provides all the nutrients in required amounts and proper proportions. I have seen people excluding carbohydrates and fats in their daily diet instead to stay fit. But how many of them knew that balanced diet is the combination of all these. And so, no food is healthy or unhealthy – even if you proceed eating only the so claimed healthy food, how will get the balanced diet and certainly it would lead you to health disorder. You can have everything but the main thing here is the right quantity, you need to have the right quantity of food at regular intervals since “Too much of anything is good for nothing”

The total fat (visible invisible) in the diet should provide between 20-30% of total calories. The visible fat intake in the diets can go up to 50kg/person/day based on the level of physical activity and physiological status. So, include everything in your diet but in proper proportion.

Chicken Noodles Pancake / Noodles Pancake recipe / Maggi Noodles Recipe

Coming to noodles, Maggi noodles balances the diet because of the protein, carbohydrates and fat content in it. When compared to vegetable cheese sandwich, veg biryani, dosa, Maggi has lesser amount of fat content in it.

Also, to maintain the quality, Maggi undergoes different stages before packing, like steaming, baking and then fried for few seconds.

Now let me share a quick, easy and a simple pancake recipe with Maggi noodles, that goes out well for breakfast or a tea-time snack for kids, after school.

Ingredients:

  • Maggi noodles with masala – 1 packet
  • Whole wheat flour – 1 cup
  • Shredded chicken – ½ cup
  • Black pepper powder – ½ tsp
  • Eggs – 2 nos
  • Baking powder – ½ tsp
  • Butter – 3 tbsp
  • Milk – ½ cup
  • Salt – ¾ tsp or to taste

Preparation:

  • Toast the shredded chicken in oil with black pepper powder and salt, cook until the chicken is perfectly done.
  • Remove it to a tissue to drain the excess oil.
  • Break the eggs, add salt and beat it well.
  • Boil the Maggi noodles in a cup of water, drain the water and remove it from fire.
  • Take a mixing bowl, add wheat flour, baking soda, a tbsp of butter and mix it well.
