Salt as required
1 tablespoon chana dal
1/4 teaspoon ginger powder

1/2 teaspoon black pepper, slightly crushed
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds, slightly crushed
8-10 cashews, chopped (optional)
7-8 curry leaves, chopped

Making of Kanchipuram Idlis:
In a bowl, take rice and idli rice and wash it with enough water at least 4-5 times and then soak both the rice in enough water for about 4-5 hours.
In another bowl, add urad dal and fenugreek seeds. Wash it with enough water and then soak for about 4-5 hours.
Drain all the water from urad dal and transfer both urad dal and fenugreek seeds in a grinder. Add 1/2 cup water and grind into a smooth paste. Transfer the urad dal batter in a bowl.
Now, drain all the water from rice and transfer both in a grinder along with 1/2 cup water and grind into a smooth paste. Transfer the rice batter into the bowl containing urad dal batter.
Mix thoroughly and cover the bowl and let it ferment overnight for 8-9 hours. Now, in a bowl take chana dal and wash it 3-4 times with enough water and then soak for about 30 minutes.
In a grinder and add black pepper and cumin seeds. Grind into a coarse powder and keep it aside. Drain all the water from chana dal and add the soaked chana dal in the batter. Add ginger powder along with some salt and mix well.
Now, in a pan, heat some ghee in it. Once the ghee is heated, add black pepper powder. Saute for few seconds and then add chopped cashew nuts. Saute until lightly golden. Then add chopped curry leaves.
