Idli and Dosa are popular breakfasts in Southern India and Sri Lanka. Idli is made by steaming a batter consisting of fermented black lentils (de-husked) and rice.
Idlis and dosas are served with chutneys (coconut-based) and sambar. In some places, it's also served with kaara chutney (onion based) or spicy fish curries. The dry spice mixture podi is convenient while travelling.
