However, there are many instant versions as well that are very easy to make and have tremendous nutritional value too. Oats Idli is one such instant idli recipe with high amounts of energy and carbohydrates that also tastes good. Adding vegetables of choice not only make it healthier but also adds to its aesthetics.
Add the salt, powdered oats, and rava.
Add as much water as needed to make a medium consistency, lump-free batter.
