PODI IDLI RECIPE | KIDS FRIENDLY SNACKS

Idlis are are always the one which most of the mom struggle to feed their kids, especially in a South Indian family, Yes as far as i have seen among my kids friends, the South Indian kids don’t like to have idli in their lunch box and where as the North Indian friends finish the Idli milagai podi within no time. Please excuse if it is the reverse at your house. Even whenever i pack idli for lunch box i feel guilty that i didn’t pack any veggie for them. This idea for this podi idli came to me when i met a reader during my recent trip to India. It always makes me very  happy when i meet my readers. I met her in the Chennai Domestic Airport and it so happened we both were sitting next to each other even in the flight from Chennai to Hyderabad. that time she shared that she tried my ammini kozhukattai recipe by adding peanuts to it and kids loved it too. Thanks Laskhmi.

When i was making idli 2 days back  suddenly this thought came and finally i came with the idea of Kids friendly podi idli. I totally loved this and feel free to give your own touch according to the preference of your child. Scroll down to the notes section for more tips.If you have Idli batter at home go ahead to try this easy recipe.
