Anything instant is what catches one’s eye. Everyone’s life seems to be running very fast ….,so we need everything at the same instant be it a food or something else. Instant Rava/Sooji Paddu is breakfast / tiffin that belongs to instant family ,where you get up late in the morning and needs to prepare a breakfast in jiffy, above that feeding a fussy eating kid …….,OMG nothing horrifies me as much as feeding my lil one.
Paddu ,Guliyappa,Gunta ponganalu, Kuzhi paniyaram ,Appe are the different names for this dish. Authentic Paddu is extremely delicious which is prepared by soaking and grinding different lentils and fermenting it overnight.
But here i’m sharing you the instant paddu recipe prepared with rava/sooji/semolina. I’ll be sharing you the authentic recipe shortly. Ingredients used in Instant rava paddu are very similar to the ones used for Instant Rava Idli , but I like Paddu better than Rava idli.
This is a kind of more filling breakfast/tiffin as sooji is used here .Serve as a evening tiffin along with coconut chutney and a cup of filter coffee or Masala Tea. Such that light dinner can be planned as a part of healthy diet plan.
This tastes good when served with plain coconut chutney without any tadka over it ,as all kind of seasoning is used in Instant Paddu recipe itself.This is my healthy evening snack idea ,a swap for any kind of fried food….,What’s yours?
