Kancheepuram/ kanchipuram idli recipe -- breakfast recipes

   The popular Indian food, Idlis always makes up a simple and filling breakfast. But eating the same old plain idlis frequently is quite boring for some people . But making them involves very less time as compared to the other breakfasts. So , I have been trying various versions of idlis . I always keep my dosa and idli batter ready, so that I can just whip up some interesting and yummy breakfast in no time like this one which I posted few days back and now this Kancheepuram idlis, which can be made in a jiffy with the usual idli batter along with some interesting additions. I got the recipe from Jaya shenoy's book.
