  5. Add 2 tbsp curd mix well. Grease the idli plate, keep roasted cashews(optional) in each mold. fill each mold with vermicelli mix.
  6. Stem the Vermicelli Idli in an Idli steamer for 10 mins. After 10 mins, take out the idli plates. Keep it for a few seconds and then using a spoon remove the idlis. Initially, after steaming if you tough the idlis you feel sticky on top but once it cools down you will get soft vermicelli idlis.
  7. Ragi vermicelli idlis go well with Coconut Chutney or kara chutney Here is my Chutney recipe collection. Do check if you are interested.
Don't soak the vermicelli for more than 5 to 10 mins in water. it will become soggy.
don't add more curd or water, if the batter is too tight add little water and adjust.
