Saute the veggies, and then add tomatoes and salt. Then also add turmeric powder, coriander powder, red chilli powder and sambhar masala. Add boiled arhar dal and add plain water and some imly water. Let it boil once and cover it.
Now add fruit salt to the idli batter and some water. Pour the batter in greased idli moulds. Now the trick is to place the idli plate in the kadhai in which sambhar is cooking. You have to make sure the plate doesn't touch the sambhar so you can either use multi-purpose kadhai with idli plate set or place a stand and then keep the idli plate. Your sambhar and idli will cook in the same pot, at the same time.
