Instant ragi idli is made with 3 basic ingredients, ragi flour, semolina, and curd. I tempered it with lentils, curry leaves, and onion to enhance the flavors. This is a great way to make idlis without fermentation. I used soda to make fluffy idlis, eno fruit salt can also be used in place of soda. Make sure to add soda or eno fruit salt just before pouring the batter in idli molds.
