|Eniyavan runs Mallipoo Idlis, a Chennai-based company that specializes in 30 varieties of idlis, he supplies to caterers at events, such as weddings. |
MR. Eniyavam knowns how to make 2000 types of idlis and has even attempted to enter the Guinness Book of World Records by making gigantic idlis weighing 124.8kg.
|For someone who started out with no experience in cooking, Eniyavan has come a long way. He hails from Coimbatore. “I dropped out of school after Class VIII,” says Eniyavan. He waited tables and washed tea glasses to earn a living and later turned an auto driver.|
|It was a usual day at work when a customer got into his auto with a huge trough of idli batter. She was Chandra, who made idlis to be sold at small eateries in her locality. She went on to change the course of Eniyavan’s life — once she became a regular in his auto, Eniyavan started delivering her idlis.|
|Moreover, even though he has only studied up till class eight, Iniyavan has presented a doctorate from an American University for his experimentation with idlis and he wants to continue his passion for idli making and claimed ‘The world is constantly changing so why can’t idlis?”|
|The idli innovator often gets inspired by his children, “My idea for pizza idlis came after my son suddenly said that he wanted to eat pizza, so instead of taking him out I just found some leftover poriyal and make a pizza ildi and he loved it.|
|Besides attempting the 2,000 varieties Idli on Sunday, Iniyavan said that he would also be giving out tips explaining how to make the perfect fluffy idlis. “Many don’t know that replacing the water with tender coconut water can make the battery last longer and also make the idlis softer. |
Also, to avoid letting the batter get spoilt overnight, only the rice should be ground and the dal should be added the next day,” he explained.
|If you are in Chennai or visit in the future so you have to visit Mr. Eniyavan restaurant and taste a different kind of Idli. |
I have shared below mention address for this magnificent restaurant.
Malli Anbagam, No. 26/51, 2nd Street, B Block, Ezhil Nagar, Ezhil Nagar, Chennai-600118, Tamil Nadu, India
