Instant Poha Idli Recipe / Instant Aval Idli Recipe

Usually idlies consumes time due to fermentation, but there are few varieties of instant Idlies, that can be prepared without fermentation. I have already shared Instant Rava Idli / Instant Semolina Idly which is very easy and quick to prepare, but in this Instant poha idli / Aval Idli, we don’t need to ferment but here comes the 2 hrs of soaking time. I came across this recipe, through one of my foodie friend – Meenakshi Ramesh, much thanks to her, we all liked the idli to the core.

Instant Poha Idli / Instant Aval Idli is a common breakfast among all south Indian families which is served with chutney, sambar and podi. This idli can be consumed for dinner also, a best for babies below 12 months and above 7 months.

Instant Poha Idli / Instant Avali idli is easy and simple to prepare, also it is very soft, fluffy and spongy and so this can be served for anyone from a 7 months old baby till an elder person. I have paired this idli with Kara Chutney / spicy Chutney and Idli milgai podi. Let me share the recipe …
