Jonna Rawa Idli | Jowar Idli
Jonna rawa idli (jowar idli) is a healthy alternate to regular rice idli. Make with jowar - it's packed with fiber and protein. Perfect Indian breakfast.
For Jonna Rawa Idli:
- 1½ cups Jonna Rawa (Jowar/ Sorghum rawa)
- ½ cup Urad dal
- To taste Salt
To make Jonna Rawa Idli:
Soak jonna/ jowar rawa in just enough water for 4~6 hours. Soak urad dal separately for 4~6 hours.
Grind the urad dal into a smooth batter using just enough water. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
Drain jonna rawa/ jowar and add to urad dal. If the rawa seems too coarse, then grind it in the mixer for a few seconds, then mix with urad dal.
Cover the bowl and set aside in a warm place to ferment for at least 8~10 hours. Mixture will get frothy when ready.
Add salt to the mixture and mix well.
Lightly grease the idli molds and distribute the batter evenly in the idli molds, steam for 12~15 minutes. Serve hot with chutney of choice.
- If you only get whole jowar or sorghum, then grind them in a high power blender to make the rawa.
