Prepare Batter 

Take semolina and curd in a big mixing bowl. If the batter appears dense, then add some water to it and mix well. The consistency of batter needs to remain same as that of idli batter prepared with dal and rice. In this much quantity of batter 1/4 cup of water is used.

In a small pan add 1 tbsp oil and heat it sufficiently. Meanwhile finely chop curry leaves. When the oil is hot add mustard seeds to it. Turn off the flame while roasting the mustard seeds and add also add curry leaves to it. Place the prepared tadka in batter and mix it thoroughly.

Microwave the idlis

Take a microwave idli container and grease it with some oil. Add some enu fruit salt and mix well. Take 1-1 tsp batter and place it on the molds. Place the container inside the microwave and cook it for 1.5 minutes on maximum temperature. 

If microwave idli container is not available, then take microwave safe bowls or glass bowl for making the idlis. For this, grease the bowl with some oil and fill them half with the batter.

Within 2 minutes the idlis in container are ready. Take them out and place the bowls inside and microwave for 2 minutes. If the idlis are not cooked and appear too white in color then microwave for another half a minute little slightly brown. Likewise prepare remaining idlis as well.

When the idlis cool down, take them out from the container using a knife. Similarly take out the idlis from bowls as well. Veg rawa idli in microwave is ready. Serve it with peanut chutney, green coriander chutney, coconut chutney or any other dips as per your preference.
