Homemade instant Idli

 

 

Hello Readers,
Being a mom of a 18mo old, I keep on searching for recipes almost everyday. But when it comes to food, your little one might like it one day and may not the other day.
Mine still enjoys the taste of Idli and I try to include the variants so that she doesn’t get bore off it easily plus it’s so easy to make 😉
