Recently  when we went to a restaurant i noticed chilli idly as the days special item. out of curiosity i ordered it. even the person who took the order said me, that its newly introduced and i should try it for sure! I thought it will do for me, so i did not even think of placing order for the other items. So when i saw my chilli idli coming in a small bowl, i was clean bold! It was just 5 mini idli's coated with milagaai podi.
