I’m back to blogging for 3 days in a row this time with Blogging Marathon # 17 (BM#17). Slight change in the format, but same idea of cooking with a theme for consecutive days instead of a week. I’m joining the marathon for 2 weeks this time and my first theme is “Cooking with Ready made Stuff”. 

I don’t usually buy ready to cook food, even though I know some of them really good and they are fast and convenient. I try to make everything from scratch because I keep stock of the basic ingredients needed for most of the dishes and it doesn’t seem cost effective to buy ready to cook foods again. But recently my work got a lot busier and I find that I don’t have much energy left to make anything even over the weekends. So when I saw Valli’s themes and saw this theme, I wanted to try some of the “ready to cook food” and see how they taste. 

Rava Idlis using Instant Rava Idli Mix

For the first dayof BM# 17, I made Rava Idlis using MTR brand “Instant Rawa idli mix”. These are super simple to make, all you need is some yogurt and chopped cilantro. I used greek yogurt mixed with water. The mix has all the seasonings, cashews, tempering ingredients and the final product was excellent, given the minimum amount of work put into it.

Rava Idlis using MTR Instant Rava Idli Mix

I served my idlis with this delicious Cilantro-coconut (milk) chutney that I made from Nupur's blog. This is one of my favorite chutney right after my absolute favorite peanut chutney.
