Hired an auto to go to the restaurant as most of these are located in small streets. Low ambiance. But I swear , I have never tasted Idli like this. Their "Ghee Podi Idli" was amazing.

This idly shop makes the softest idly thats possible. Located around 2 kms from Meenakshi temple in Madurai city, the location is not to be missed by foodies. Please also have paniyaram and bonda too. Strongly recommended..
