Allow the rava to cool down, then add the grated carrots and chopped coriander leaves. 

Add the baking soda and mix well.

Add 2 cups of buttermilk slowly and keep mixing. 

Allow it to sit for 3-4 minutes.

The rava would soak some of the buttermilk, so add another ½ cup of buttermilk of water to make the batter to a idli batter consistency.

Pour the batter into the idli stand and steam for about 15 mins.
