Instant Oats Idly

Standard

Usually I and my hubby use to have oats for breakfast. It would be in the form of porridge with milk and some fruits, but it was getting bored and so thought of trying out a new dish. May be a idly everyone including kids would like to have it.

Oats idly was soft, spongy and delicious, also it was very simple, easy and prepared in minutes. No worries of fermenting the batter, everything in minutes. Let me share the recipe…

Jack Fruit Idly

Standard

Jack fruit is one among the special fruits of summer. I use to have jack fruit, not to very often or I am not a fan of Jack fruit. But my daughter likes to the core, when she finds Jack fruit in the market, she urges to get it. Yesterday as of my daughter’s wanting and for a ritual as offering my hubby got Jack fruit. He got more the quantity of Jack Fruit, she had little and I kept the other in refrigerator.

Today morning when I saw the Jack Fruit, I thought of trying some recipe with Jack fruit and had a chat with my friend about this, she told me that her aunty prepares Jack Fruit Idly which would be yummy and also she guaranteed that not only kids even we would finish it in minutes. So I wanted to try it immediately.
