Idly Kurma,a snack item which my grand mom n mom used to make with the left over idly.This idly dish tastes delicious and unique with the tangy touch of Tamarind.I love to eat the onions/tempering cooked along with the tamarind juice.Sending this recipe to My Innovative Kitchen for the event Twisting The Traditional-Idly.Here goes the recipe.
