this is so timely!! i love idlis and i actually recently bought a pack of rava idly mixture but i after i came home, i read the instruction at the back of the box but the explanation doesn't seem complete and i didn't know how to use it! yr posting came at a perfect time! but i wanna ask, what sort of curd do you use? can i use plain yoghurt?
