If you have batter on hand, then idli is undeniably one of the easiest snacks to prepare. However, plain idli might not be very appealing to some, especially kids.

You could make it more exciting by dunking cubes of idli in sambhar or curd, with appropriate tempering and garnishes. This lip-smacking Dahi Idli recipe is easy to prepare, but extremely flavourful thanks to the tempering of mustard and cumin seeds along with chillies and curry leaves.

If you have a mini idli plate, you can prepare this recipe with mini idlis instead of idli strips. It will look even more awesome!

An instant and quick snack for kids after school. The tempering added to curd, makes it more tasty. I added chilled curd to my idlis, which was so refreshing. loved it.
