Hi Priya. Nice nd interesting recipe. At first I thought they are LOTUS SEEDS (MAKHAANAAS) , but on going through the recipe I came to know that they r rice balls. Will definitely try . U have given a nice idea of giving this in tiffin. Secondly, if possible can u share recipe of Idli Powder. If I am not mistaken is it Sambhar Powder ?
