Idli, the soft and wholesome South Indian delicacy, is popular all over the country. It is often the subject of food experiments by vloggers, street food vendors, and others. You may remember the viral videos showcasing the unappetising "rasgulla idli" or the unconventional "nariyal pani idli." Among the latest fusion recipes taking the internet by storm is "Apple Idli." While the addition of the fruit may not seem as strange as other examples, Instagram users seem to have had enough of these bizarre idli varieties.

In the Instagram reel, we see a person cutting an apple to start preparing the dish. The next shot simply shows him pouring a batter from a mixer-grinder onto a plate. The colour of the mixture suggests that the chopped apple has been blended along with idli batter. He combines a few pieces of the raw apple with the batter on the plate. He then transfers it into apple-shaped moulds. The 'idlis' are placed in a steamer to cook. Once done, they are de-moulded and plated on strips of banana leaves. The cook places an apple slice and pomegranate seed on top of each idli. The dish is served with three types of chutney and sambhar. Take a look at the complete video below:
