Hot Cross Idlis
Before I post this, I want to acknowledge the wonderful friends who have been sharing a whole bunch of awards with me – Thanks you lovely ladies – Nancy&VijaySangee Vijay Jay, Chitra Krishna, Cinnamon & Chillies, Mina Joshi, Indrani Vardhini – You all have incredibly amazing blogs too and I am happy to be cooking with you ::) IF I have failed to include anyone else who has given me an award, shame on me – please pull me up! It is or sure an oversight since I am not meticulous about posting acknowledgements quickly- But every award I get I revel in, and cherish wholeheartedly.

Sharing it with all the Super blogger friends I look forward to hearing from each day, who make my day with their comments and their own wonderful posts :)

Now for the Hot Cross Idlis

Hot Cross idlis
Our blogger friend Priya Ramakrishnan of Elaichii took one look at these and exclaimed  – Oh Hot Cross Buns Idlis and in a second gave me the best name for this dish :) Thanks Priya – you rock!
Hot Cross Buns

We had a Food Event at our community – I’d made a 100 idlis, of which 60 got sold- We had our sai Bhajans the next day and I had all these idlis left over. So I made a quick Kothamali-green chili chutney (clinatro chutney) and decided to go about making these :)
Here is another way to polish off left over Idlis :) I made some with molaga podi and some with chutney creating The Indian flag effect, unintentionally!
Adios amigos and Happy Weekend – Plenty cooking with many family visits in the next few weeks – Look for some sweets and savories and some very traditional recipes ….
I am sending this to Akila’s Dish starts with H event
