Kanchipuram Idli is a special variety of Idli that is loaded with spices. It has the strong flavour of pepper and cumin seeds, which together with the crunch of roasted cashewnuts and chana dal makes it a real delight to devour. This recipe is named so, because it is said to have originated in the kitchens of the Sri Varadharaja Swamy temple in Kanchipuram, where it is still prepared as a daily offering.
Despite the recipe having become famous all over the world, devotees claim that the preparation at the temple has an inimitable flavour! That said, not everyday can we have the real stuff from the temple, so here is how to make it at home, and that too quickly, using the microwave oven.
