    3. Heat the remaining oil. Add asafoetida, mustard, channa dal, urad dal, finely chopped green chillies, coriander and stir fry.
    4. Optionally, for a different taste, any type of curry powder (vaangibhaath powder, chutney powder) can be added instead of green chillies.
    5. Add this mixture to the soaked rava-vermicelli mixture and stir well.
    6. Mix the remaining sour curds and set aside for another 5 mins.
    7. Grease the idli plates and pour a spoonful of this mixture to the moulds.
    8. Steam it in cooker or large vessel for exactly 15 mins.
    9. Remove the idlis from the mould and serve the hot idlis with coconut chutney.
