    can u plz post a picture of these idlies?? Plz?

    Hi Sailu, I tried these idlis and they turned out wonderful. I was a little skeptical initially about the softness and added small qty of baking soda, but looking at the result I am confidently going to do away with the soda part the next time I prepare these. Healthy version of idlis!! thanks so much for this new recipe.
    Planning to try out your rava dosa recipe for this weekend. The tips are going to be very helpful.
