If there's one South Indian dish that can give classic dosa a run for the money, then it surely is the idli. Idli is the second most popular South Indian dish (the first being dosa) among all. In fact, to most of India (and abroad), South Indian cuisine is synonymous with dosa and idli. Idli is light, nutritious and fulfilling to the core. This further makes idli a popular meal choice to kick-start the day. Pair idli with coconut chutney and sambar - and you get a delicious meal in just no time.
Today, if you explore, you will find multiple versions of a classic idli recipe. While some like to replace rice flour with ragi flour in the recipe, some add flavourful stuffing in the idli to make it yet more delicious. We recently came across one such stuffed idli recipe that left us amused. And hence, we decided to share it with you to up your breakfast game. It's called keema idli.
