I do make them also with my idli plates and have them a la idli style with molaga podi and coconut chutney- that tastes great too. What I did end up doing this weekend is making it the conventional style and a few idlis that I served with sweet/sour and spicy strawberry raita which I will share as recipe next.
greasing the pan
the batter mixed per packet instructions
The traditional plate with thadka
A slice garnished with coconut (optional)
A side view to show how porous and soft it is
Don’t forget to dribble the lime juice on them – Mixing sugar in the juice is an option – I do not do that.
Eat as a light lunch, an afternoon snack with tea or weekend breakfast
