METHOD :

 

Take oil in a thick bottomed pan and heat it on a low flame. Add mustard seeds, when they crackle add bengal gram and urad dal. Stir with a spatula and let them turn pale brown, then add cashew pieces, asafoetida, turmeric powder and curry leaves. Add the semolina and saute for some time. Turn off the stove and let cool.
Take yoghurt and whisk it. Mix the seasoned semolina in it. Add grated carrot, onion pieces, coriander and salt to it.  
Put water in the idli pan and heat it on a low flame. Take the idli stand and grease it with a little oil. Add soda to the batter and mix well. Put a spoonful into each mould. Steam it for almost fifteen minutes on a medium flame until done.
Semolina idlis are ready to serve. Serve hot with chutney.

Take a tip : You can avoid using onions. Hence, it is ideal for no onion -garlic days too.  Using of sour curds is mandatory, as the batter is not fermented.

    I love this easy to make and so flavorful semolina idli. I remember that use to be my lunch practically everyday when I was in Bangalore. Love it with the veggie stew.
