Heat 1½ tbsp of oil in the same broad non-stick pan, add the vermicelli and roast on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring continuously.
Remove from the flame and add it to the semolina. Add the curds, salt and 1½ cups of water and mix well. Cover with a lid and keep aside to rest for 30 minutes.
Heat the remaining 1 tbsp oil in a small non-stick pan, add the cashewnuts, urad dal, mustard seeds, green chillies, curry leaves and asafoetida and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.

Just before steaming, add the fruit salt to the batter and mix gently.
Pour a little batter into each of the greased idli moulds and steam in a steamer for 10 to 12 minutes or till the idlis are cooked.
Repeat with the remaining batter to make more idlis.
