Perhaps the greatest Indian food, or at least fighting it out with Masala Dosa. The mixture is fermented rice and daal (lentils) but the result is something like an Indian pancake. This is accompanied with spicy or sweet chutnies, instead of butter and syrup.
I just downed seven of this batch of idlis in Bangalore. Definitely the best idilis I’ve ever eaten, courtesy of one of my new aunties.
