oats idli recipe without soda:
For oats idli without soda: I have added little bit of cooking/baking soda here in this recipe which can be replaced by fruit salt or without it. in that case, rest the batter for 30 minutes and then use but you will miss the super fluffiness in idli though it remains soft.
Vegetables used: Vegetables added here are capsicum, carrots and paneer. You can even add peas, beans but make sure all those are very finely chopped so that it blends in idli and does not stay odd looking.
Rava/sooji: I have used normal upma rava/sooji in this recipe.

- mix well with a fork until well combined
- lastly, add baking soda(optional) just a pinch
- mix with water little by little to get a idli batter consistency. (not so thin not so thick). I have used approximately half cup water
- mix it thoroughly for the soda is combine well with the batter
- place cashews or any vegetable piece on greased idli plates
- fill in the mould with batter and steam cook for 10-15 minutes.
- let it cool a bit and scoop out the idlis. to easily scoop out idlis, soon after opening the cooked idlis, cover the idli plate with another plate and rest it for a minute before scooping idlis out. also, wash the spoon you use to scoop, wet spoon doesn’t stick and idli easily comes out.
- serve hot with chutney of your choice.
