Then chop green chillies,grate carrot and finely chop one medium onion.
Heat 2 tbsp of ghee and crackle the mustard seeds.
Then add the cumin seeds,green chillies and hing. Fry for sometime.
Add the finely chopped onions and grated carrots and cook for 5 minutes on a low flame. Let the mixture cool for a bit.
Add this mixture to the rava batter. The batter should not be too thick. Add a couple more tbsp of water if required.
Grease the idli molds lightly and just before putting the mixture into the moulds, add half a tsp of eno fruit salt and mix well. The mixture will bubble up.
Put it into the idli containers and steam for 15 minutes. Let the idlis cool down a bit before removing them.
These idlis are so delicious that they don’t really require any chutney to go along with it.
