Red Rice Idli |

Idli is the staple food for South Indians, which we make from polished white rice. Even though most people know red rice is healthy and nutritious, we don’t like it as cooked rice. Red Rice Idli is the best alternative because the taste is similar to the white rice idli, but nutritious than white rice idli.
