I know you might feel weird by reading this title or you might have tried this earlier. If you have tried this earlier it's ok, if not I just want to say a few words about this idli. There is nothing to feel weird about this, after trying out all different idli's, dhoklas from our innovative bloggers, I just want to try some different idli. That's how this cocoa idli is been created. I made a semi sweet and instant version of this idli and served with vanilla custard. Since I made it in a pan and cut them into squares, it doesn't looks like idli, but yes you can make it in idli plates. You can also make these idli's with very little sweet that too in normal idli batter by adding cocoa and nuts. Serve those idli's with spicy chutney or sambhar, I don't think you'll regret. If you regret feel free to mail me, we'll keep it secret sssshhhuuu...
