Soft, healthy and makes for a delicious breakfast, lauki idli or sorekayi idli

Idli is one of the best breakfasts ever to be invented on earth in my opinion. They are so light and fluffy and very nutritious. Adding more nutrition into your idlis, sounds good right? Lauki or bottlegourd or doodhi or sorekayi is a great vegetable. It has so much goodness, so incorporating this goodness into steamed idlis, it gets my thumbs up. Lauki idli is one of the best ways to feed fussy kids with some lauki.
All lauki idli needs is some preparation in the form of soaking some idli rice. Idli rice or fat grained rice is best for this recipe, you can get this type of rice in any Indian grocery store. I have also added some upma rava or sooji into the batter to make the idli light and to give it some extra texture. Lauki cannot be seen or detected in this idli and when you steam the lauki idli it brings a sweet aroma. ... “Lauki Idli | Sorekayi Idli | Idli Recipes”

As a kid when I used to go to hotels or darshinis (few & far between), I always ended up ordering masala dosa. But I used to be always fascinated by nice looking dishes like mini idlis served with tiffin sambar and chutney. Those mini idlis served with ghee and piping hot sambar is a sight!
Not to worry, making mini idlis might seem like a difficult task. I have always found that we, as home cooks get intimidated by making something mini or miniature in size. It somehow becomes a daunting task although we can rustle up big batches of meals to serve a crowd. Making these mini idlis is not that difficult after all. It is essentially idli recipe but made into mini idlis. ... “Mini Idlis | Baby Idli | Hotel Style Mini Idli | Idli Recipes”

We all love instant recipes be it idlis or dosas. But instant recipes need to have the right balance to turn out to be tasty. Their fermented counterparts enjoy the time to rest and turn out to be light and airy. But adding flavourful things into a recipe like corn or spinach like this instant corn idli makes them taste so good!
Corn idli is made from corn rava (maize rava/cornmeal). This is easily available in grocery stores. Just like making rava idli, this instant corn idli is a specialty. It has yogurt added for moisture and light instant fermentation.
