Idli Milagai Podi Recipe
Chef's tip
1. I like Idli podi very hot, if you feel 20 numbers of red chilli too high. Reduce the number of chilli according to your spice level.
2. It's optional to add chana dal if you don't prefer omit it.
3. Always use good quality asafoetida and sesame seeds it gives very good flavour and aroma.
