Dudhi Saannan(Sweet Idlis) by Nisha Baliga Shenoy

Dudhi Sannan is a popular steamed breakfast snack developed by the GSBs. These sweet idlis are energising, full of flavour and a sure hit with kids. Traditional cooking involves soaking the rice, grinding it with other ingredients, fermenting the batter and then steaming the idlis. Some may follow easier method by using idli rava but I always like to make it the traditional way.
