51 COLORFUL VEGETABLE IDLIS

Colorful Vegetable Idlis

Colour colour what colour which colour do you choose(want). A fun game to play with your kids( Picky eaters) and ask them to choose their choice of color among these colorful idlis. Let's see if they choose all or atleast some.

Recently my mom saw a tv show and gave me the idea of making the idlis this way. Used one of the ideas and rest are of own. Hope this attracts your kids or also you.


Take few ladleful of idli batter as needed for your family in 4 bowls.

You will needed few tbsp of each of these below

1. Carrot chutney
2. Beetroot chutney
3. Tomato chutney
4. Mint(Pudina) and coriander(kothamalli) chutney



1. Carrot chutney
Chop one carrot into thick pieces. Saute in a tsp of oil till raw smell leaves along with 1 or 2 red chillies. Grind to a thick paste with a pinch of salt. To attract tem[er with urad dhal, cashew and curry leaves. Also can add a pinch of turmeric powder.

2. Beetroot chutney
Chop half of a beetroot and suate them in few drops of oil along with 1 0r 2 red chillies for few mts. Grind to a thick paste with a pinch of salt.

3. Tomato Chutney
Saute 2 tomatoes along with 2 red chillies. Grind to a thick paste with a pinch of salt. ( Can use tomato chutney instead)

4. Mint and Coriander chutney
Saute a handful of mint leaves along with coriander leaves and 2 green chillies till the leaves shrink. Grind to a thick paste with a pinch of salt.( can use mint or kothamalli chutney instead).



Mix each separately as required in separate bowls. Grease your idli plates with oil and pour each colors of idli batter. Steam cook for 12 - 15 mts and serve you colorful vegetable Idlis.
