About Instant Bread Idli (Indian Snack) Recipe

This is a very interesting snack recipe as, though we named it idli but we will not be using any idli batter or semolina to prepare Instant Idli. Bread slices and potato cutlets are used to give a idli like shape and appearance. Another quick and innovative snack!!!
