My Notes:

  • Add gingelly oil(nalennai) which tastes best, it is good for health too.
  • Just for flavour ghee is added.
  • You can even use leftover idli to make this but as we are making for lunchbox for kids, I recommend making fresh idlis.
  • You can even refrigerate the fresh idlis for a while to make them stiff so that it doesnt crumble while crumble.
  • Do not cut the idlis when it is still hot / warm.Let it cool completely then start making cubes.
