notes:

  1. for potato stuffing you can even add grated carrots and green peas to make it more healthy.

  3. the instant stuffed idli batter consistency is very important. it should not be too thick nor too runny.
  4. be careful while stuffing the idli’s. stuffing should be thick and small sized so that it doesn’t come out of idlis.
