When it comes to Indian breakfasts, there are some ‘favourites’ that you just cannot ignore. Semolina, also known as Suji or Rava is just one of them. Semolina’s popularity may have something to do with its versatility. For the uninitiated, semolina is the coarse purified wheat middling of durum wheat. It is replete with good carbs, antioxidants and minerals like zinc, magnesium, and potassium. It also contains trace amount of protein. While across the world, semolina is used to make various types of pasta and puddings. In India too, semolina is used freely in many delicacies consumed through the day. However, we find ourselves gravitating to the superfood a little more during breakfast time.

Rava Idli, Rava Dosa, Rava Uthappam are some popular breakfast items from India that are made with semolina. Did you know, semolina once also saved a major South Indian restaurant in Bangalore during one of India’s biggest food crisis? In the second world war, due to shortage of rice, Bangalore’s MTR started making idlis out of semolina, paving way to one of our most beloved Rava Idlis today. Since semolina is also considered healthier than rice, it is used as a ‘healthy’ substitute of the traditional rice batter now.
