Method
Heat oil in a pan & temper it with above ingredients.
Add the rava & turmeric powder, in very low flame fry for few minutes,do not burn or over fry them.I usually switch off the stove & fry it in the heat of the pan.
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.
Serve it hot with any chutney you wish.


Note:
ENO is very important ingredient in this recipe,make sure its active,otherwise your idlys will not turn out good.Some people use cooking soda instead of ENO fruit salt.
You can also mix in grated carrots & peas into the batter.
Instead of chopped green chillies & ginger ,you can grind & add it to the batter.
