Feeling like having idlis for breakfast, but have not prepared and fermented the batter? Not to worry! Try this Sooji Idli, which is sure to please you with its soft and fluffy texture and interesting flavour. The addition of curds gives the idlis a slight sourness akin to traditional fermented batter, while coriander and the tempering boost its taste further. Not only is this recipe quick and tasty, it also looks very attractive as the tempering, which is mixed and steamed with the batter settles all over the idlis making them look very nice and appetizing.

This idli is wonderful. Like the Rava dosas and the dhoklas, this one is also a great recipe.. The cashewnuts give a nice crunch to the soft and fluffy idlis. Along with the taste, the apperance is also so attractive. The tempering added to the idlis gives it an amazing look when cooked.
