By Window Seat
As the train chugged away into the night, our aunts, mothers and grandmothers used to slowly whisk out the podi-smothered idlies, soft dosas with bright chutneys and curd rice with lip-smacking pickle at its centre. How many childhood fantasies revolved around the breeze by a train window and slowly devouring the delicious dinner. Idlies is a love-child of train journeys and home-made food.
The soft, hot, steaming idlies that mother used to feed, is now for all to taste and experience. With mother at its helm, and several other mothers coming on board, Idlies embodies the soul of a nurturing, empowered, and caring matriarch. It churns by the force of women and delivered by the force of women.
KEEP IT CLEAN, PACK IT GREEN
There's something fundamental about how we receive our favourite foods- onam sadhya, temple puliodhare, mess dosa- and we know that. Nothing adds flavour, colour, texture and handiness of Idlies like the packaging with banana leaf. And hey, it's eco-friendly!
JODI PUTHUSU, COMBINATION MASSU
Rains and bajji, paruppu sadam and appalam, strawberry and cream... And then, our mothers told us about these outright fantastic combinations- podi idli and morkuzhambu, dosai and vetha kozhambu, payasam and appalam. They were right. We haven't been able to keep our hands off the plate ever since!
SIMPLY TERRIFIC, ONLY ORGANIC
When grandmothers and mothers pass on a technique, you simply have to trust. What you won't find in your kitchens, you will not find on your plates. Idlies is purely driven by natural foods- no preservatives, no chemicals.
HOT IN A POT
A hearty meal from Mother Earth, is also an earthy meal from the heart. Hold out our pots brimming with love and come home to the comforting promise of the traditional curd rice, vennpongal and more.
