Idli is a staple of South India and has become a favorite for breakfast. Not only is it very healthy and delicious, it’s ready in no time. Take regular rice flour and steam in a regular mold for a few minutes to prepare a soft, fluffy idli that can be combined with chutney, sambar, or as-is. From OatsIdli to RavaIdli, Idli has numerous variations and versions. Vice President of India M. Venkaiah Naidu recently visited Twitter to share his experience of trying Millet Idris, a healthy version of Idli that he strongly recommended. See his tweet:
Today, I had a lavish breakfast of millet idli made on the stalls of “Vasena Poly” run by young agricultural entrepreneur Chittem Sudia in Visakhapatnam. With a rich flavor and taste, such kibi-based foods provide a healthy and organic alternative to our diet. pic.twitter.com/REFDDRTDA7— Vice President of India (@VPSecretariat) November 24, 2021
Such innovative efforts by our youth to return to our traditional diet and lifestyle are commendable. — Vice President of India (@VPSecretariat) November 24, 2021

“Today I ate a gorgeous breakfast of millet idli made at the stalls of’Vasena Poly’run by young agricultural entrepreneur Chittem Sudia in Visakhapatnam,” tweeted by the official handle of the Vice Presidential Secretariat. I read. Idli’s photo was also shared in the tweet. Delicious millet idli was steamed with banana leaves and combined with two types of coconut chutney.
India’s Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu praised a healthy breakfast prepared by a young entrepreneur. “With its rich flavor and taste, such kibi-based foods provide a healthy and organic alternative to our diet,” he added to the tweet. He also wrote in the same thread, “Such innovative efforts by our youth to return to our traditional diet and lifestyle are commendable.”
Twitter users were also intrigued by the Vice President’s healthy breakfast. Many of them wanted to sample the delicious millet squirrels themselves. Others wanted to encourage him to provide a healthy diet and encourage more entrepreneurs working to maintain traditional recipes.
