Idli is a very popular South India breakfast dish that is light, mild-tasting, and popularly consumed as an ideal snack for when you want to give your little one’s stomach a rest from a burst of fiery flavors. Imagine the goodness of the soft, fluffy masala idli recipe devoured during breakfast or lunch, keeps little and loved one’s tummies full. A fermented lentil-and rice-batter (or ragi aka finger millets version) is steamed in little circular molds, and the resulting spherical rice cakes are served with sambar and chutneys.

When it comes to gorging on a delectable batch of fresh idlis, I turn to my south Indian taste buds. I can eat idlis made from millet dosa batter almost every day. This recipe makes frequent appearances on our menu. Making Idli is the simplest snack ever. And this recipe that I am about to share with you is fool-proof and you can follow it blindly.

The spinach-ey green dosa batter from Slurrp Farm is made with natural ingredients, no preservatives, no artificial colors or flavors, no transfat, and low on salt. I have also included a bunch of curry and coriander leaves which adds the iron and mineral content to the recipe. With minimal spices, this healthy food was gulped down in no time.
