In my house, breakfast is the big thing. I make quite a healthy and filling breakfast daily. I believe in the fact that you should eat like a king in the morning. Most of the time it will be healthy idlies, dosa, pongal, upma and stuffs like that..
Recently i have started experimenting with idlies, since hubby loves them. I have posted them here, you can check out my ragi idli, thinai idli, rava idli, oats idli..This one is another addition to my idli list..
