Mini Idli Sambar

Mini Idli Sambar or Ghee Idli Sambar is a popular breakfast dish across South India, especially in Chennai and other cities of Tamil Nadu.

The regular fluffy idlis are a delicious breakfast by themselves but when you make smaller versions of those and pair it with the perfect sambar, it is a match made in heaven.

There are different places to get the best idli sambar combination. Some of the most popular hotels are Saravana Bhavan, Ratna Cafe, Sangeetha, A2B – Adyar Anandha Bhavan, Murugan Idli Shop and few others.

But nothing can beat a delicious bowl of homemade hot sambar with the mini idlis dipped in it for breakfast or dinner.

Whether you are starting your day or finishing your day, this dish is a quite filling and is very tasty.
