  • Idli  is a traditional breakfast in South Indian households. Idli is a savory cake that is popular throughout India and neighboring countries like Sri Lanka.
  • It is made by steaming a batter consisting of fermented black lentil (de-husked) and rice.
  • The fermentation process breaks down the starches so that they are more readily metabolized by the body.
  • Idli fry is a delicious option as a change without losing the original essence of idli.
