Saw this recipe here . As I did not have proper vessel , so made it just like normal idli. 

Ingredients needed:

  • Idli rice - 1 cup
  • Raw rice - 1 cup
  • Urid dhal - 3/4 cup
  • Methi seeds - little
  • Salt

  • Ghee
  • Mustard seeds
  • Jeera 
  • Black pepper
  • Cashews
  • Ginger
  • Green chili
  • Curry leaves
  • Coriander leaves
  • Hing powder

Method :

                    In a vessel soak Urid dhal and methi seeds together. And in a separate vessel soak idli rice + raw rice together for 6 to 8 hours. Grind bit coarsely soaked urid + methi first and keep it in a vessel and then grind rice this add salt and mix it well and allow it to ferment well. (You can grind it in grinder or mixie. I have used mixie). 

Before preparing idli , clean and chop ginger , green chili , curry leaves, coriander leaves and set aside... Take a kadai add ghee and once hot add mustard seeds , allow it to splutter then add black pepper + jeera + cashews + hing powder + chopped ginger , green chili , curry leaves, coriander leaves and then add it to the batter and mix it ..

Take idli plates and grease it with oil and then pour batter in each hole and then allow it to steam till done like normal idlis .
