A perfect vegetarian side dish for idly, dosa, hoppers, and string hoppers and with Indian flat breads. Coming to lunch, this goes out well with any variety rice. Kids love this as it has been mildly spiced and also you can infuse little coconut milk at the last stage and remove it from fire for more flavors. Let me share the recipe…
