Podi Idli

A good way to start my day would be with idlis served with milagai podi (gun powder/idli podi). But sometimes, you can just put the two together and present it as podi idli.

This version doesn’t contain itself to the breakfast table, it sneaks into my kid’s and my husband’s lunch box also at times. It’s a perfect travel food, where in you don’t have to carry the main food and a separate side dish.

And the best part is you just have to use three ingredients… idlis, milagai podi and 2 teaspoons of oil!

You can either add the podi to the oil first and then add the idlis to it or do the other way around. Here, the idli has gone in first and the podi is added on top.
