Sabudana idli

Sabudana is one of my favourite ingredient and I have posted few dishes earlier.To name a few, sabudana pops,sabudana kichdi,sabudana laddoo and today it is Sabudana idli. I had prepared this idli long time back and found it in a folder.There was a time when I used to prepare this idli every now and then….This is a very easy recipe and I love the taste and texture  too. This recipe came to my notice when my friend Pallavi Nayak posted it in a group and I got so inspired I prepared it.
