Idlis are one of the most popular breakfast delicacies in India. They are made by steaming a batter made of fermented urad dal (black lentil) and rice. A plate of idli is a complete meal in itself as it is rich in fibre and protein and helps you keep full for a longer period of time. They are super light, fluffy and extremely versatile. Which is why people prefer it so much for breakfast. Speaking of our love for idlis, ghee podi idli is one such dish that is extremely popular in South India. Podi is a mixture of ground dry spices and is commonly referred to as gunpowder or chutney powder.
