Tri-Colour Idli With Unique Carrot Chutney

Tri-Colour Idli With Unique Carrot Chutney - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Although Idli chutney are popular food of South India,,,, they have become a favourite breakfast for the whole country (hence came up with the idea of colouring it in tri colour). Street food are believed to be unhealthy food,,,,, but not this one. These are made with almost no spices and very little oil. Any street food lane is incomplete without a handcart of these, 'Idlis'. Idli's on street are made with semolina so i too used the same. Also because semolina is much lighter, easier to digest and can be prepared instantly (without waiting and prior planning, then soaking and fermenting) I added carrot puree for orange colour and mint-corriander paste for green colour. My both kids very excited to see them. My elder one took all the clicks for me (she was that happy). Tatse was superb.
