Soak rice and toor dhal together for 2 hours. Chop the onions finely.

Grind rice and dhal coarsely in the blender with red chilly, salt and coconut. The batter should not be so thick or watery, should be in the consistency of idli batter. Add chopped onions in the batter and mix well.

Steam the batter in idli plates for 10 to 15 min till it cooks. After it cools, use your hands to scramble into small pieces.

In a pan, add 3 tbsp of oil, add mustard seeds, urad dhal, hing and curry leaves.Then add the scrambled pieces and fry for 2 minutes.
