All that we need to kick-start the day is some wholesome food. And, what can be better than indulging in some South Indian dish in the morning? Among all breakfast options, foods like idli and dosa offer the most lip-smacking flavours. They not only make you full but are nutritious too. For most of us, paratha, toast or oats is the preferred breakfast but when some idlis are on the table, hardly anyone can resist taking a bite. For Shilpa Shetty too, a couple of idlis seem to be the way to get charged for the day.
Shilpa Shetty, in her Instagram Stories, gave a sneak peek into her breakfast where we could see a bowl of two idlis with sambar poured on top. A dollop of white coconut chutney was also on the side. Besides this, Shilpa Shetty, being a fitness enthusiast, made sure to eat some dry fruits as we spotted a bowl of dried apricots on the table.
Now, if you are left craving some fluffy idlis, then here are the five ways you can enjoy them.
