I immediately taught of rawa idli which my mom used to prepare, I immediately checked for ingredients and I had everything at home. So why make it late… I said come on I can do it. did rawa idli and enjoyed my dinner with Tomato chutney.. Oh my god… Indian food is always our choice…I tried taking pics of this dish but I got only few. will update the photos soon... Have a look..
