Celebrating World Idly Day

A Global Feast with AMK Krishna Rice

Every year on March 30th, food lovers around the world come together to celebrate one of the most beloved staples of South Indian cuisine – the idly. This World Idly Day, as we join in the festivities, let us take a moment to appreciate the cultural significance and universal appeal of this humble yet iconic dish.

At AMK Krishna Rice, we take immense pride in being a proud producer of premium Idly rice varieties that satisfy the cravings of idly lovers worldwide.

As we celebrate World Idly Day, it’s worth noting that idly isn’t just a regional favourite – it has garnered admirers from all corners of the globe. Whether it’s the comforting warmth of a steaming plate of idlies on a chilly morning or the joy of sharing this wholesome meal with loved ones, idly holds a special place in the hearts and palates of people everywhere.

One of the most popular and delicious accompaniments to idly is the classic South Indian sambar. Bursting with flavor and brimming with wholesome ingredients like lentils, vegetables, and spices, sambar adds a delightful burst of taste to every bite of idly. Let us showcase this iconic pairing by sharing a mouthwatering recipe for Mini Idly with Spicy Sambar, a favorite among kids and adults alike:
