This is the standard idli recipe from south india, where idli is so greatly loved that they would not mind having it for breakfast and once again for dinner too! it is considered ‘safe food’ as it is steamed, and can be had anytime (even when you are unwell), and anywhere (even at roadside shops).
Toovar methi na dhokla looks so smart that it literally lures the diners to try it! and, once they try it, they just cannot stop with one because it is so tasty. The liberal use of chillies makes it appealing to spice lovers, while the goodness of toovar dal and methi makes it acceptable to the health-conscious as well. However, don’t underestimate this recipe—does need a bit of practice to perfect it!
