    Hey thats a nice shape. Its the first time I have seen idli shaped like that !
    Is cooking soda essential even after fermentation?
    Luckily I have made idli batter with the same proportions I will try this kanchipuram idli 🙂

  3. Srivalli says

    Yes Archana it is needed to get spongy Idlies and also since the shape is huge it is essential.

    We were in Kancheepuram for a year and my dad absolutely loves this. It doesnt taste exactly like the regular idli. Lil bit heavy but quite filling!

    Your recipe came out very well. I tried it last week end. Thank you very much for posting it. The only variation from your instructions was, I added thick sour curd instead of cooking soda..

    Thank you very much.
