      idly rava is completely different from semolina
      idly rava is finely ground parboiled rice

    from where found idly rava?

    • anusharaji April 28, 2009 at 8:37 am #

      idly rava is coarsely ground parboiled rice
      if you cant find idly rava in Indian stores, look for parboiled rice or idly rice and grind them in batches.
