An innovative variant of the traditional steamed idlis, these are sweetened with jaggery! it should ideally be served hot with ghee poured on top of the idlis.

  3. Add the jaggery to the rice flakes and blend in a mixer to a smooth paste.
  4. Combine the rice batter, rice flake paste, dill leaves and salt together in a bowl and mix well. (check the consistency and add a little water only if required so as to get a thick batter).
