Take a pan, heat it, and add the wheat flour to it. You have to keep roasting it, till it starts to give out a fragrance. When it is roasted well, keep it aside in a bowl to cool it.

Take another pan and heat oil in it and then add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, chana dal, chopped ginger, green chillies, coriander leaves, curry leaves and grated carrot, and saute it. Keep it aside for 5 minutes to let it cool.

After that, take the roasted wheat, add water to it, and mix well. Then add the unfermented curd, salt, and baking soda to the idli batter, mix well, and make sure there are no lumps in the mixture.

Add the cooked vegetables to the batter and mix well. Your idli batter is ready to be cooked.

Your wheat flour idli is ready to be eaten. It can be served with tomato onion chutney, sambhar, and coconut chutney.
