Instant Corn Idli

We all love instant recipes be it idlis or dosas. But instant recipes need to have the right balance to turn out to be tasty. Their fermented counterparts enjoy the time to rest and turn out to be light and airy. But adding flavourful things into a recipe like corn or spinach like this instant corn idli makes them taste so good!
Corn idli is made from corn rava (maize rava/cornmeal). This is easily available in grocery stores. Just like making rava idli, this instant corn idli is a specialty. It has yogurt added for moisture and light instant fermentation. The pop-in-the-mouth corn niblets (frozen/fresh) along with sweet raisins make them very unique in taste.
