Serve hot or cold for up to 3 people.

Sugar 1/2 cup
Eggs 2

Now mix well so that beaten eggs wont float on the top.
Put the idly cooker on stove and switch on the flame and add some water as u do to make idly. Now put the bowl in the cooker and close with lid.
Now steam for 25 to 30 mits.
U can make this in the normal rice cooker also.
