  • 1 and 1/2 cups broken corn
  • 1 and 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/8 tsp soda
  • salt to taste

To temper:

  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1/2 tsp jeera
  • 1/4 tsp split urad dal


  • I got fine corn rava this is it. To a mixing bowl add corn rava.
  • It was so fine, just like our white rava. Add thick buttermilk to it.
  • Mix well, the consistency will be runny. Keep covered for 5 mins.
  • Then add salt and baking soda. Set aside.
  • Heat oil and add the items listed under to temper. Now the mixture is a bit thick.
  • Now add the tempering and mix well.
  • Grease your idli plates with oil, take a ladle full of the batter and pour into the mould.
  • Steam cook for 10 mins or until a spoon or inserted inserted into the idlis comes out clean with sticking. Then its done. Switch off.
  • Remove the idli plates, dip a spoon in water.
  • Using the spoon remove the idlis. Transfer to hot box.
  • Serve Broken Corn Idli hot with your favorite chutney!


  • I used homemade buttermilk. The mixture will be a bit runny after 5-10 mins resting time the rava will absorb it well. If the mixture is too thick then add little water.
