For all idli fans out there Ramassery idli is ‘the’ place you should all visit. This dish that doesn’t look anywhere close to the ordinary idaly is traditionally a monopoly of a family in Ramassery. Saraswathy tea stall opposite Shree Mandath devi temple, Ramassery is run by the same family and is open everyday from 5 am to 8 pm. Breakfast hours are best suited to visit this place.
This place will change your concept about idalies once and for all. The uniqueness of Ramassery idli can be spotted at the first glance itself as it looks very different from the usual idlies that are made in mould. The sheer fact that each idaly is handmade separately itself is mind blowing. Their special ingredients and preparation methods are widely imitated but none could come in par with the brilliance of this dish.
Many restaurants in the city buy idalys from Ramassery and sell them in the city but if you want to try the real deal prepared fresh, its always better to visit the Saraswathy tea stall near Mandhath devi temple, Ramassery, Just five kilometers away from Palakad town. The owners of this tea stall hold the much coveted recipe of the famous Ramassery idalys.
Everything about this idli has something different about it which contributes to its uniqueness. The idli itself has a much wider form than the usual hemispherical shape you all are accustomed to. The culinary methods used in this dish itself are very special. A steaming pot of water is first covered over with a jute mesh and later with a plain cotton cloth. Battered flour with special ingredients is poured over the cloth and then again covered jute mesh. Only 100 idlis are made by a single person per day as they prepare each one separately.
They follow the tested methods in preparation by the book and haven’t changed anything from the wooden furnace which only uses tamarind logs to the ingredients of their idaly. They serve this dish with sambar, ulli chammandhi, chutney and a special powder. The special powder served with their idallys are said to be the best combination with their idalys.

A sister concern of this hotel operates near District Hospital Palakad. Bhagavathi Hotel is run by one of the daughters of Bhagyalakshmi, the current head of the family who prepares Ramassery idally. This is a place that makes you part of a legacy every time you have food from here.
