  • To this, add the chopped chillies, coriander and grated carrots.

  • Add the turmeric powder and fry for a minute.

  • Add this seasoning to the powdered oats mixture and add the curd to it to make a batter like that of idli batter's consistency.

  • You can add as much curd to the mixture to achieve the consistency, but do not add water to the batter.

  • Grease the idli steamer plates with oil and pour the batter into each area of the steamer.
