  1. To Prepare The Seasoning
  2. Heat oil in a pan on medium heat and add mustard seeds. As they begin to splutter, add channa dal and roast until the dal turns golden brown. Add chopped green chilies, curry leaves and asafetida and sauté for a few seconds. Keep aside.
  3. To Prepare The Oats Rava Idli Mix
  4. Dry roast the oats (make sure you roast the oats very well, otherwise oats can get very sticky) until you get a well roasted aroma and it has slightly changed in color. Once done, cool and blend to a fine powder. Keep aside.
  5. In the same pan, dry roast the rava until it changes color to a light brown and keep it aside.
  6. In a large bowl, add the oats powder and roasted rava. Add the seasoned ingredients, grated carrots and chopped coriander leaves and mix well. Add yogurt, salt and little water at a time to make a thick batter. The consistency of the batter should be slightly loose than the regular idli batter. Set aside for 10 to 15 minutes. The batter will thicken while it rests.
  7. After the batter has rested enough, add baking soda and mix again.
  8. Grease idli plates with oil and pour the batter into each cavity of the idli plate. Steam the idlis for about 10 to 15 minutes until cooked through. When you insert a knife, the batter will be clean and cooked and not raw. Then you know your idlis are cooked to perfection.
  9. Serve hot with a chutney or sambar.
