  1. I am very fond of idlis. Soft idlis are easily digestible. But if one uses these ready-made dosa-idli batter from shops for preparing idlis sometimes the idlis come out really hard. Another thing is you have to make sure that the batter from the shop has salt already added or we are expected to add salt to the batter. Nice post.
