The saga of Iddly 4

Posted by
Devi (Chennai, India) on 17 July 2014 in Food & Cuisine and Portfolio.

The iddly is ready to eat -served. They are soft and fluffy and wonderful to have with chutney and a gravy called sambhar ( a gravy with a lot of vegetables). You can see the marks of the woven bamboo here. They are not puffed up like the normal iddlies but thinner and softer.

Beautiful composition and great shot, these iddlys seem appetizing, we want to taste.
Have a nice day.

@gerard1948: These look a bit different in this that these are flatter and not puffy. The ones made in metal molds will be chubby:)

Lovely, although I may have to wait a while to try, it appears Bath Road is in Hounslow which is just outside of London, so another 80 miles further on for me than the City of Bath :-)

@Doug: Take your time Doug:) The iddlies would wait:)
