Number of serving: 4
1 cup Idli rava

1 cup fresh/frozen grated coconut

7-8 (can be more or less) dry red chillies

Hing (to taste, usually 1 teaspoon)

Cabbage chopped finely: 1/2 a cabbage of medium size

Water to make a very thick batter


  • Soak Idli rava with water just covering the top level of rava in the container for 15 minutes.
  • Grind Coconut, Red Chillies, Turmeric to a very fine paste with very little water.
  • Add hing, and the soaked Idli rava (which would have by now absorbed most of the water) and grind it with the coconut paste with very little water to form a very thick batter.
  • Add salt, and chopped cabbage and mix well. Grease the idli plates or vessel that is used inside a steamer.
  • Make small round balls (size of table tennis ball), and keep them on the greased plates.
  • Steam them in a steamer until the steam is free flowing at high fire and then lower the fire to minimum and steam for 30 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the dumplings come out clean.
  • Smear some coconut oil/gingelly oil on the dumplings.
  • Serve it with coconut chutney or as is as a snack, dinner, or for breakfast.
