The chiblu idli dates back to an era when modern kitchen conveniences of utensils weren’t easily available in villages, and so people would fashion cooking vessels out of resources handy. In the absence of present day idli steamers, village folk would steam idlis in baskets, known as ‘chiblus’ in kannada, made of bamboo, over a wood fire. And thus, these soft, aromatic chiblu idlis came into being. The painstaking effort required to steam idlis using this old-fashioned approach has caused this ancient practice to all but disappear. We travel 80 kilometres to Halaguru to savour this delicious tradition at Babu Hotel, a tiny village eatery that has been serving up the chiblu idli for over half a century now. Hope you enjoy this episode, take care and stay safe.

Chiblu Idli
The chiblu idli is aromatic and steaming hot, served with a dollop of butter and alongside palya and red chilli chutney. The idli is soft, porous and carries a tart edge from the fermentation, that the butter helps balance against. The kempu chutney has a good balance of spice, and the crunch of the coconut complements the grainy bite of the hurigadale (roasted gram). The palya is savoury with the flavour of the onions.
Rs. 10 (usd ) per idli; Rs. 5 for butter

Tuppa Dose/ Bene Dose/ Masala Dose
The dose is crisp to the touch and fried to an appealing golden brown. Makes for a simple but satisfying tiffin with the palya and chutney. The masala dose is similar but stuffed with palya and larger in size, with twice the amount of butter.
Rs. 10/ 25 (usd ) for bene/ masala dose

A pleasing lemon rice preparation should you wish to round off your breakfast at Babu Hotel.
Rs. 25 (usd )

Happy Eating!
