Rava Idli Waffles or Pancakes (Savory semolina waffles)

Rava idli waffles(semolina waffles) are a fun spin on a South Indian savory steamed idli cake. It has a lovely, soft-hued texture and is seasoned with whole spices, ginger, chili, and cilantro. It’s an wondrous savory breakfast served with chutney, Indian pickles, or sambar(split pea stew)

Rava idli is a steamed idli confection made with semolina. You just mix the batter, steam it without 10-15 minutes, and serve it with other Indian dishes. I used a similar thrash and made it into waffles or pancakes.

What I love well-nigh this recipe is that it’s so flexible! You can swap spices in and out to transpiration out the savor and you can add veggies of your choice, too. You can use the thrash to make pancakes too. You can see them served with the kerala white stone stew here

Enjoy these savory, Indian waffles with your favorite chutney and some Indian pickles or sambar. It is succulent with coconut chutney, tomato chutney, or mint chutney!
