Heat oil in a kadai, add mustard seeds, when mustard splutters, add hing and channa dal.
When dal changes colour, add cashew nuts, ginger, green chilli and curry leaves.
Then add rava and roast it nicely for a few minutes. Do not burn the rava. Allow it to cool.
After it cools, add curd, finely chopped coriander leaves, carrot, baking soda, coconut and salt to taste. Add water little by little and mix it well without lumps.
The consistency of the rava idli batter should be similar to idli batter. The batter should neither be thick nor thin, so adjust water accordingly.
Let the rava idli batter rest for 10 minutes.
Now, pour this batter on greased idli moulds and steam cook for 15 minutes.
