As always Podi is HH's most favourite item.He is satisfied with a simple idly podi and Curd.Whereas I am the other way round.I don't like Idly podi for Idly.I need a spicy gravy.My kids are like their dad. I don't take much effort at cooking a sidedish for idlies.
Earlier I had posted a recipe Idly Podi Uppuma.The one presented here is a slightly different version of the podi uppuma..It is very easy to pack for travel.It stays good for 1 day.Kids will definitely love it when minimal amount of podi is added to the idly.
No need of making any side dish...
