Idli with Smoked Salmon


What is this mold for?

What is an Idli?

Let’s answer this basic question if you have never seen, heard or tried an Idli. Idli are: exquisite, fluffy, savoury, rice pillow shape cakes; perfect breakfast food in South of India. And, for my kids perfect snack any time of the day.

Idli with smoked salmon

Lately I grew bored with blini, bigne, crostini or any of the usual way of serving smoked salmon. After enjoying smoked salmon on Capers Madeleine with smoked salmon and coriander chutney, I wanted to try it with Idli and the result leaves no doubt….love at first bite….. The sourness of the Idli marries perfectly well the saltiness of smoked salmon and creaminess of the mascarpone to finish add some lemon to clean up your palate and be ready for the next one.

Find the recipe below, and hope you will enjoy as much as we do.
