Palakkad: Mami's Kitchen at Kanniyaman Kovil street here has been alluring foodies by serving 21 varieties of Idli. Vadakantha native B Sunil Kumar started this eatery with the idea to reintroduce idli as a completely different food.

Stick idli, which looks like a kulfi and mostly preferred by kids is one of the major highlights at this shop. Those who found the round idli boring will be surprised to see the rectangle idli here.

Apart from the idli varieties in different shapes, nutritious idlis including ragi idli, tender coconut idli and vegetable idli made of carrot or beetroot are also available here.

Mami’s Kitchen experiments are not limited to Idlis only. A total of 21 types of chutney and 51 types of tea are also available here.
