About this Recipe

By: Haifa Sarwar

Breakfast being the most important meal of the day, I always kept looking for new recipes and inspirations to create excitement as well as a nutritious meal. I got inspired by mini idly but I didn’t have that much time to soak, grind and ferment the batter. So I came up with this instant alternative with rice powder and guess what?! This recipe was a super hit! Made with easily available ingredients in our pantry.
This recipe can be categorised in south Indian cuisine since we will be using a few ingredients we love in the south. I have used store-bought rice powder which is easily available everywhere and you can use whichever rice flour you have.
