  10. I love these mini idlis. Great for breakfast. I hadn't realised idlis could be made instantly at home. I have always bought the instant packs but now know better.

  15. I love mini idlis.. they are so cute. Usually I make the mini ones to stir fry them a podi. I've yet to try making instant idli at home as usually I make them with fermented batter.
