Poha Idli is another easy dish to prepare for the busy mornings. They are soft, bright smiling white and  delicious. It is ideal  to serve as breakfast menu. It is easy to prepare as no soaking, grinding and fermentation is required.

Idli is the ideal breakfast for busy mornings. But, grinding the batter needs time and patience. Instant idlis as Rawa Idli and Ragi Idli always come to my rescue. But, when you want to make something different, give a try to this Poha Idli. Poha is flattened rice commonly used in South Indian households. This is easy poha idli recipe is ideal for all.

Poha and South Indians:

South Indians love using poha in their daily routine. It is so commonly used,  chiwda is usually present in the kitchen shelves. Tangy  beaten rice is tasty and  usually served for breakfast. And not to mention, on the fasting days, it is a no cook food eaten by most people.

    Idlis with poha and idli rava sounds interesting yashree. I do add aa little quantity of poha in my idli dosa batter while grinding, but never tried with large quantities. The idlis looks very soft and fluffy.

    The poha idli looks so soft. I only made poha dosa so far not idli. The best part is no fermentation required for this. Thanks for the recipe and quick breakfast ideas. Adding to my list.

    Using poha for idli batter, that is interesting. The idlis look so soft and inviting. Bookmarking this recipe to try out soon as I have quite a bit of poha in the pantry.
