Sprinkle water in intervals till you get a light & nice fluffy batter.Transfer to a wide bowl.
Same way grind the rice and beans for at least 30 minutes to a smooth  batter.The batter should be little thicker than urad dal batter.
Transfer to the urad dal batter add salt mix both the batters well.Cover & leave it to ferment to 6 to 8 hrs.Before using mix the batter well grease the idli plates pour a ladle of batter and steam till cooked.

Cool this mixture,now mix the water,lime juice,salt & curd.The mixture will look like a idly batter,light & semi thick ( your batter should not be too thick or too thin).
Grease your idly plates with oil,place a fried cashew nut & some grated carrot.
Heat water in your idly cooker,once your ready to steam the idly, mix in the ENO to your batter & gently mix till it forms froth & bubbles starts to appear.
Immediately pour a ladle of batter on top of the carrot/cashew nut & steam them for 8 minutes or till done.
