Sambar Idli Recipe - How to make Sambar Idli

Sambar Idli Recipe

I love mini idli sambar or sambar idli the best but only at some restaurants where I like their sambar, here in CBE I love both Annapoorna and Anandas.

Introducing my new idli pot...Finally bought one as per my needs and requirements...yayy👍 I transformed a steel kadai and was using it all these days...though I have a idli cooker I take it out only when there are guests at home because it is too big.So that justifies this new buy right?! :)

My Notes:

  • Sambar should be neither thick nor runny, it should be inbetween.
  • Make sure your sambar or idli is hot while making sambar idli so that the idlis easily absorb the sambar.Both are hot then bliss ;)
  • The idlis shold have porous texture so that it absorbs the sambar well.If they are smooth then it is not suitable for sambar idli.The idli batter should be slightly grainy to achieve this.
  • You can use leftover idlis too.

  1. I bought almost the same idli pot few years back in x-cut..It was not so opt for the ceramic cook top top here, yet I am still using it..with the steaming plates and all, very useful. Good buy!! :)
    Btw, I love use cloth for making idli..otherwise (I feel), idli is kinda dry!! ;) :)
