(This podcast was first published on 30 September 2019. It has been republished from The Quint’s archives in light of a social media debate over idlis.)

Today, I'd like to take you on an IDLI-CIOUS journey, where we discover the origins of the humble idli, the right way of making it, and of course, some out of the ordinary recipes.

Spoiler alert, there's a possibility that idlis may not be South Indian. In fact, they may not have even originated in India.
