I blame the winter for my laziness for not making Rice idlies since the last few months..To get a descent idly I have to keep the batter in the preheated oven overnight and still the result wont be that awesome so I took a break from idly and I am waiting for the weather to get better before I try making them again. But sometimes I get a craving to have idly ad thats when this instant oats idly is a blessing ...It was Rava idly before but after I learnt that Rava has nothing good in it I switched to oats idly and and u get a healthier version of instant idly without compromising on taste !
While I was shooting this picture it was already 9 in the morning and lil A who was up early was hungry by the time and was waiting for his breakfast impatiently , selfish me took the plate to dining table and warned him that its too hot and went to take the camera ignoring my hungry son, but after I clicked one picture I couldnt make him wait anymore and had to satisfy with just one picture :)
