Isnt it possible to make the banana idli w/o baking soda...want to make it for kids as a healthy option?
Baking soda makes the idlis light and spongey. You can definetely make it with the soda. The idlis will be little denser and won't rise. The taste is going to be the same.

Hi.. could you please tell wt is lemon zest?
Lemon Zest is the outer skin of the lemon. The colored skin is scraped gently using a grater or zester. It gives a nice nice lemony flavor to the recipes.

can all types of banana ()nendran, mondan, robusta...etc....) be used for these preparations or are only certain types will be preferable
Hi Ambika, Any type of banana should be fine except nendran. I have used robusta here.
