Watch leftover idlis transform into a delectable tiffin treat that your kids will love to munch on. Tossing the idli cubes with ghee and malgapodi makes it spicy and tasty, and also ensures that it stays soft and moist in the tiffin box for around 5 hours.

Even when you do not have leftover idli, you can make Malgapodi Idli with button idlis made in a mini idli plate. This will look even more appetizing for kids! Also pack some Masala Pineapple in another tiffin for a perfect short break combo.
