Instant Idli is gluten recipe.

Idli is one of most popular and tastiest breakfast in southern part of India. Along with most popular Mallige Idli, and Rave Idli, there are many ways we can prepare the this breakfast. This is one of the instant Idli which requires no fermentation. It will be very soft and fluffy. If you want you can add pinch of soda to the batter. But I feel it is not needed.
It is the best kids lunch box breakfast.
