  1. In a food processor add radish, ginger, onion, green chili and grind well.
  2. Remove water from dals and wash one more time.
  3. Now add soaked dals, salt to the food processor and grind into a smooth paste.
  4. Transfer lentil mixture into a large mixing bowl.
  5. Add rice flour and mix well. Add some water or more rice flour if needed.
  6. Add Eno Fruit Salt or soda to the batter and mix well. At this point, the batter would be so light, fluffy and almost double in size. This is exactly what we need.
  7. Add ¼ cup boiling water to the base of steamer.
  8. Grease the idli molds.
  9. Now pour a idli batter into the molds.
  10. Cover and microwave it on high for 3-4 minutes. Insert a toothpick in idli to check if it is cooked. We want soft and spongy idlis, so do not overcook idlis as they might absorb the moisture and will become hard.
  11. Once cooked, remove the idlis from mold by inverting the mold. They will come out automatically. Now repeat the same process with rest of the batter.
