Thanks Srivalli and Remya.for posting ur comments,

@ Asha, Sunita, Raks Kitchen, Sneha...waiting to see these on ur blog too once u try them.

@ Rina, yes-this is a very famous in tamilnadu. In fact it is either done in a flat plate and then cut into pieces or in tumblers. But i prefer it in idli plates.
