Thayir Vadai is a very popular south indian recipe. I have blogged this thayir vadai | curd vadai some time back.  My nephew is very fond of thayir vadai and my sister too makes it at home for him. Since making vadai frequently is not so healthy , she was bit worried and when we were discussing ,suddenly this thought of Thayir idli came to my mind. It worked out very well and now it is so easy to make and quite healthy too. Best one to have in the summer.  Try out this Thayir idli | curd idli and i am sure  you will love this one.

Note:
  1. As idli is always soft no need to soak in hot water before adding as we do for Thayir vadai.
  2. Adding cashew nuts gives a nice creamy texture.
  3. If you want you can temper mustard seeds, urad dal and curry leaves to the yogurt mixture.
  4. If you feel the thayir idlis are too thick while serving, add little whisked yogurt. Do not add water.
  5. You can cut normal idlis and do this too.
  6. you can make the north indian style of dahi vada too.
