Ghee Podi idli recipe, How to make podi Idli

Ghee podi idli recipw with step by step picture and video, a delicious snack made using left over idlis or even with fresh idlis.  Idli smeared with molagapodi is one my most favorite breakfast | snack. Even my kids prefer to have podi idli for lunch box. Recently i have tasted Ghee podi idli in few different places and i wanted to recreate that version at home. You can make this with whole idlis but i have made by making the idli into cubes. If you have left over idlis at home from morning breakfast, you can make this for tea time snack. So if you are looking for easy recipes using left over idli then it is a must try recipe. Also you can try the Idli tikka recipe which i have posted some time back. This flavourful ghee podi idli can be served along with a onion raita too. Though idli upma is my most favorite one, more than idli, recently this ghee podi idli tops my favorite list. Do try this recipe and let me know how it turns out.
