Stuffed idli recipe - idli recipe - idli recipes - breakfast, dinner recipes

Whenever I visit India I try different idli at breakfast (at a restaurant buffet). However, my sons are not a fan of idli in fact my second son doesn't even eat idli. So I seldom make idli at home even if I make it is just for us and dosa for my sons. I wanted to try this for a snack (stuffed idli). For idli batter pls refer here.
