We all have tried idli at roadside street food stalls, restaurants, college canteen, office canteen or at home too. I think there will be only very few people in this country who did not try those soft fluffy white color food. I hope that being a food lover, you do not belong to that group of people. Otherwise, you won’t land on this page. But did you ever have cute button idli in your life?
I love those button sized idlis and those look very cute too. I had noticed such cute button idli at Andheri, Mumbai. That was near JB Nagar area, one street food seller used to sell very small button size idli but he used to fry those idlis with various spices and sell those as masala idli. I wanted to try those but I do not know why I preferred to have something else. But this incident happened a few years back in 2013. After that, I never noticed such mini idli anywhere.
After that, I forgot about the incident but a few days back I noticed mini idli maker on an online store and I decided to buy it. I received that mini idli maker within a couple of days. It was four layered idli maker and you can make 12 idlis at a time. You can keep it inside 3-litre pressure cooker very easily and make idlis. Material quality is excellent and a perfect useful & durable kitchen tool.
Next day I made 24 mini idlis. All those cute button idlis were perfect for three people. Actually, each pair of mini idli is equal to one standard size idli. This mini idli maker comes with a mini book for idli recipe and coconut chutney recipe. I prepared that coconut & coriander leaves chutney to have it with cute button idli.
How to make mini idli in cooker?
Well, if you talk about mini idli or standard idli, both are actually same in taste because same batter is used. But it is only miniature size what make it special and cute, haha. I used same batter to make mini idli in cooker.
