South indian cuisine is almost synonymous with idli! idli is not only easy to make but also extremely healthy and easy to digest. In fact, when stranded on a highway with nothing to eat, people wouldn’t hesitate to walk into a roadside hotel and buy a few idlis, as it is steamed, and therefore quite safe to eat anywhere!
