Here're 3 Easy Ways To Reheat Idlis:
Here we bring you a microwave technique that can instantly reheat your idli. All you need to do is take a microwave-friendly plate and fill it with leftover idli. Next, take a glass or a small bowl filled with water. Place the plate inside the microwave along with the glass. Microwave the idli for 45-50 seconds. Wondering why we placed the water glass inside the microwave? Well, that's because water helps in adding moisture to the air, thereby keeping the idli from drying out.
The other way is fairly simple. Take an idli steamer/cooker, fill it with water. Place a single idli tray or a stand inside the steamer. Place all the idli on top of it. Cover the steamer and wait for 2-3. And voila, you have achieved the result!
3. Instant Pot
Fill the container with water. Take a stainless-steel strainer and place it on top of the pot. Now, add the idli and cover the container with a lid. Wait for a few minutes and it's done!
