ABOUT Keema Stuffed Idli RECIPE

I love to cook- very true. The reality is that I love to cook easy, quick and one pot meals with easily available ingredients. I always experiment. I experimented with idlies by stuffing them with chicken keema and shredded carrot . The result? It has become Children's favourite recipe.
