presentation of idly is nice & decoration is lovely.idea is very good & great.kids like presentation of idly having various shapes like using capsicum,tamotoo,carrot,cucumber&tamotoo sauce,etc. I loves idly too much.
I love your web page! I'm born Eastern European and I discovered South Indian cuisine some 15 years ago, since then I always wanted to learn how to make all these wonderful dishes on my own. This is a first web page where I can find all I like in nicely organized, and well presented manner. Excellent job! Thank you for creating this culinary gem!
