With the summer showing it’s true colours, I am on an Idli spree,I think nothing is more comforting in the blazing heat. After the semolina idli, we come to the kanchipuram idli. 

This recipe is ideal to make when you have leftover idli batter in the refrigerator. It is often regarded as a boredom to eat anything more than once a week. This is easy to make and tasty,needs no accompaniment and  ideal for breakfast or at  tea time.

Ingredients :

  • Idli batter 1/2 kg

  • bengal gram 2tbsp

  • green chilli 2

  • ginger 1 inch

  • coriander 1/2 bunch

  • cumin 1tsp

  • oil 1tsp

  • mustard 1/4tsp

  • asafoetida 1/4tsp
