  2. Heat the ghee in a small non-stick pan and add the mustard seeds.
  3. When the seeds crackle, add the cumin seeds and asafoetida and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.
  4. Add this tempering and the remaining ingredients, except the fruit salt to the prepared oats-semolina batter and mix well.
  5. Just before steaming, add the fruit salt to the batter and pour 2 tsp of water over it.
  6. When the bubbles form, mix gently.
  7. Put a little batter into each of the greased idli mould and steam in a steamer for 7 to 8 minutes or till the idlis are cooked.
  8. Cool slightly, demould and serve immediately with sambhar and coconut chutney.

A lot of people are used to getting the idli batter from outside, but after trying this recipe i would stop doing that. It's easy to make. Oats give a very healthy element to the dish and cashews give a unique texture to the soft idlis.
