Hi friends!!! How are you all…

Idlis are the traditional South Indian dish which is very simple to prepare at home.It is an healthy breakfast option with almost no oil is required in its preparation.Lentil & rice are soaked in water & then grind to form a smooth batter, which is then steamed in shape of cake. However, today I am going to share a different variety of Idlis which are made from Semolina or sooji. Unlike traditional Idlis it does not require any soaking, grinding or fermentation & can be made at jiffy.

These Idlis can be best enjoyed with an coconut dip or chutney. Here I am not adding any vegetables to it if you want you can some vegetable to your batter while making a cake or you can fry these Idlis with vegetable as per your choice.

  3. Never tried… Looks like rice cakes but the taste and texture must be different. More like steamed bread?
