Spinach Idli3


It is a specality breakfast dish in Karnataka and popular in resturants across Bangalore. I tried to make it unique by adding spinach puree to give a greeny look.

The preparation does not require any soaking/fermenting and it is almost like instant idli just that it requires preparation and 10 minutes of resting time.

It is garnished with cashew nuts and grated carrot.
