March 30 is celebrated as World Idli Day.
The popular south Indian dish is so favoured by the people not just in India but even across the borders.
Although a lot of us prefer eating Idlis for breakfast, not many would be aware of a day celebrating their favourite breakfast item.
The idea of marking this day was of M Eniyavan, founder of Mallipoo Idly, a popular chain in Tamil Nadu.
World Idli Day has been marked since three years now.
People on social media are sharing pictures of the humble breakfast item and declaring their love for idlis.
A recent study conducted by food delivery platform UberEats revealed that Idli is the most ordered food item in the cities of Bengaluru, Mumbai and Chennai.
And the love for Idli goes global as San Franciso, London and New Jersey are the top international cities which have ordered idlis.
On this occasion, many are sharing lovely pictures of idlis on their social timeline feeds.
Twitter Hails the King of Breakfast, Shashi Tharoor Calls it ‘Greatest of All Food’.
According to the analysis, idli is most consumed during the morning, especially between 7.30 AM and 11:30 AM.
“Interestingly, March 10, 2019, was the day when India ordered the maximum amount of idlis”, says the report.
Many across the country add their own twist to this traditional staple with fusion recipes like chicken fry idli and French fry idli topping the list.
While Coimbatore loves its chicken fry idli, Tiruchirapalli likes idli manchurian and Nagpur likes chocolate idli.
You can eat Idli according to your own way! Idlis are just heavenly…
Happy World Idli day!
