  • Grate the carrots, finely chop coriander leaves& chillies. Now in a pan, heat the remaining ghee and add the items to temper, once mustard seeds cracks, urad dal and chana dal turns brown, add hing. Switch off the flame once done.
  • Now in a vessel add roasted sooji/ rava, curd, tempered items, chopped ginger, green chilli, coriander leaves(I didn't add) cashews, and required salt. Mix everything well. Adjust water to reach the dosa batter consistency that is neither too thick nor thin and finally add fruit salt/cooking soda/baking soda.
