How did you celebrate World Idli Day-2018?No, I am not joking. It is not an advance April Fool trick either. It is a fact. Yesterday was World Idli Day. This fluffy South Indian food is popular all over South India. I took idli for breakfast in Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and even in the southern parts of Chattisgarh. Nowadays, in Delhi also, idli has become popular even among the North Indians. My wife is a big fan of idli. This morning, I saw a Sardarji relishing idli with sambar and chatni and demanding more sambar from the shop-keeper in my locality.
For the last three years, World Idli Day is being celebrated on 30th March. It is the brainchild of Mr. Eniyavan, the popular idli-only caterer from Chennai. He made a world record on this day in 2015 by preparing 1328 varieties of idlis.
But I don't want to complicate idli further. My simple questions are: How many idlis did you consume on World Idli Day? Did you celebrate the day with idlis and more idlis?
