(I have been making the batter using mixie)
4. Add water depending on the consistency. Don't make it watery.
5. Seperately grind the rice and mix the dal batter with the rice mixture.
6. Add salt and mix the contents evenly.
7. The mixture needs to be prepared overnight and dosa or idly can be made on the next day morning.

1. I use the microwave idly maker for this mini idly.
2. with a spoon fill the batter in the idly plate.
3. Pour little water in the base of the maker.
4. Microwave for about 4 mins.
5. Let it cool for sometime and remove the idly with  a spoon from the plate.

Carrot - 1/2 cup
Onion - 1/2
Tomato - 1
Tamarind paste - 1/4 cup
Dal Cooked - 1 cup
Chilli and coriander powder - 1 tbsp each
Turmeric powder - little

1. cook the toor dal with the turmeric powder in a pressure cooker. 3 whistle will be fine.
2. Cut the carrot,onions and tomatoes.
3. Heat a pan and add the onions and tomatoes.
4. Cook until they become soft.
5. Add the carrot and saute for a while.
6. Add the cooked dal and add water so that it not very thick.
7. Add the chilli and coriander powder to the dal.
