In South India, idli is everyday fare, made once a day or sometimes even more frequently. As a result, nobody gives it a second thought.
However, this recipe will make you stop and pay some attention to the versatility of the humble idli. In this yummy recipe, we have cooked the idli batter with a layer of tasty potato bhaji and coconut chutney.
Both being tongue-tickling delights, they transform the idlis into a super duper snack that will be loved by young and old alike.
The Double Decker Idlis Stuffed with Potato and Chutney is not only tasty but also filling, so you can serve it as a sumptuous tea-time snack to keep your kids and family satiated till dinner time.
Alternatively, you can even cut it into twos or fours and serve as a starter. Allow the idlis to cool slightly after cooking, otherwise it will be difficult to demould them.
