Chilly Idli is a wonderful weekend snack. I normally store all the left over idli in the freezer and prepare different variety of snacks using these leftovers Idlies.
Plattershare is a social media platform for food lovers, food professionals and food businesses. Sharing recipes, food stories, pictures and promoting food businesses, they contacted me to review organic idly and dosa batters from a company called Farmz to Familiez. I was excited to do a taste test and review all the batters from this company.
Using their white batter, I prepared these chilly idlies it turned out so good crispy idli coated with spicy Indochinese masala was truly a treat for this monsoon. We can use shredded chicken or sausages as per choice.

This traditional rice batter is pre-fermented, was mildly salted, we have to dilute the batter according to our requirement. I was surprised with the results idly was soft and fluffy, even the dosas were crispy.
