Kanchipuram Idlis Recipe by Archana’s Kitchen


Kanchipuram Idlis Recipe is a variety of idly from Tamil Nadu – an Indian state known for its variety of breakfast options including Idli, sambar and chutney, dosa, vadas and so many more. Some particular South Indian towns have their own variations of idlis, and this one is from the town of Kanchipuram. You could call it the signature idli of the area. Prepared with assorted spices, these idlis are a mouthwatering treat and a lovely deviation from the regular idli. Traditionally, they are steamed in mandhari leaves but I have seen my mom make them in steel bowls and glasses, which always made a fun idli eating experience for us, as kids. Kanchipuram idlis can be made in regular idli plates too and can be served with Sambar, Kathirikai Gothsu, Chutney Podi, or Coconut Chutney.

Have you tried these other varieties of idlis like Karuveppilai Podi Idli, Ragi Idli, and Carrot & Cheese Filled Idli? Do give them a try too!
