Instant Carrot Rava Semiya Idli | Instant Carrot Semolina Vermicelli Idli

For the second day of doing instant Dosas and Idlis, I have a simple one made with Vermicelli and Rava. I have previously made a similar idlis, however this time it is made with Eno or Fruit salt. Using Eno or Fruit salt, you don't even have to set the batter to rest. You can immediately pour into the moulds and steam. Dhoklas use the same concept of steaming with eno. So it's only natural that these idlies turn out fantastic. 

While this is sometimes made using regular methods of resting, today's recipe is very quick as it doesn't require any resting time. I almost took a risk as I served this for hubby dear's breakfast without any backup plan. I was very happy hearing him say that it tastes very good. So another one for a quick breakfast fix. This also works out as a healthy breakfast for Diabetes.
