The appearance of the Idli Sandals will tantalize the taste buds of kids. After seeing these hued idli sandals, my 3 year old daughter was excited and wanted to wear them! The picture depicts one footprint on peanut chutney and the other footprint on coconut with curd chutney. Also this steamed food is rich in proteins, minerals and vitamins. Do try this recipe 🙂

  • Turn off the stove and let it cool for 5 minutes.
  • Transfer this carefully onto a greased plate and cut it into sandal shapes.
  • To garnish, cut two semi-circle pieces of parboiled carrot such that one small semi-circular shaped carrot piece is placed as a toe and the other slice as the ankle.
  • Join the two pieces with the help of any parboiled green stalk.
  • Serve it hot with peanut/ coconut chutney.
