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…
