South Indian cuisine is almost synonymous with idli! Idli is not only easy to make but also extremely healthy and easy to digest.

In fact, when stranded on a highway with nothing to eat, people wouldn’t hesitate to walk into a roadside hotel and buy a few idlis, as it is steamed, and therefore quite safe to eat anywhere!

My idlis came out soft and fluffy. Lovely breakfast snack to have with some nice coconut chutney. Healthy and kids love it too.
