Posted By: Pooja Gupta

Idli is a versatile dish that can be made and served in different varieties. You can even add variety of things in the idli batter to make it more healthy and interesting. Chef Abhishek Basu has experimented a little and have added a very unique veggie in the idli batter i.e, Yellow bell peppers. The bell peppers are not added in theraw form. They are roasted and then a sauce is made out of it to enhance the flavour of the idli. I am sure this will turn out to be a delicious treat for the taste buds. Do try.
