Mini Veggie Idli

Recipe Categories: Baby Food, Indian, Kids Recipe, Quickies

Living in a country outside of India, it is always not possible to feed your Kid the regular Indian food when they go to school/day care. The mom has a big responsibility to come with new ideas and non traditional ways of making a kid friendly Recipe. Idli – though is good for kids, it’s kind of bland when eaten without any side dish (again- limitations of school/day care). So i decided to add a flavor that is healthy and tasty and at the same time having fun when eating it. And that brings me to the Mini Veggie Idli (not that i am the first). My Toddler Son really loved it and had fun eating it. Oh, by the way, it’s good for Adults too! :).
