Dish: I for Idli — Masala Idli
I don’t make idlis often since the batter doesn’t ferment well in winters and I’m too lazy and forgetful to soak the lentil and rice for the rest of the year. Well anyway I made sure I remembered to soak, grind and ferment the batter. Thanks to the lovely warm weather we have been having lately, my batter fermented nicely in about 12 hours and the idlis turned out soft and fluffy.
Plain idlis are quite common, but today’s masala idlis are a really nice variation. I saved an article on Idlis from a Telugu newspaper in 2006. One of the recipe in that article is this ‘Masala Idli’. The addition of vegetables and the masala gives these idlis a nice spicy kick.
