 Haldiram’s Oats Idli Instant Mix: #FirstImpressions

We used the Haldiram’s Oat Idli Instant mix as per instructions on the packet. Even though the packet says 10-12 minutes, we found that it actually takes much more time. We cooked the entire pack in one go, and it took our rack of idlis (a stand with 3 plates, and space for 4 idlis on each) over 20 minutes to cook.

Overall, it is quite easy to make, as are all instant and ready-to-cook mixes. Convenience, after all, is why they are becoming so popular. The other factor which is crucial to any food is taste and texture, of course.

Taste-wise, Haldiram’s Oat Idli Instant mix is quite tasty. The use of dal and mustard seeds as crunch and flavor. It is a tad on the sour side, so if you are having this with a sambhar which is already tangy and sour, you may not enjoy it as much. Texture-wise, we wish the idlis were fluffier. Having said that, idlis made with Oats cannot be as soft and fluffy as the ones made with rice batter, and we do take that into account. Haldiram’s Oat Idli Instant mix makes idlis that are soft, just not as light and fluffy as they can be.
