Podi idli recipe

Podi idli recipe | mini podi idli recipe – Kids-friendly mini podi idli recipe with full video and step-by-step pictures.

This is an easy and fantastic snack recipe that perfectly suits a teatime snack or a kid’s lunch box. As far as I have seen among my kid’s friends, the South Indian kids don’t like to have idli in their lunch boxes. Whereas the North Indian friends finish the Idli milagai podi within no time.

In this recipe, homemade mini idlis are tossed in homemade idli chili powder | gun powder. The addition of peanuts and carrots makes this very healthy. I have given a few other healthy options in the notes section.

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 at the Chennai Domestic Airport. It so happened we both were sitting next to each other even on the flight from Chennai to Hyderabad. That time she shared that she tried my ammini kozhukattai recipe by adding peanuts to it and her kids loved it too.

When I was making idli 2 days back suddenly this thought came. Finally, I came up with the idea of Kids friendly podi idli. Kids enjoyed it very much and we also loved this. Thanks to Lakshmi for this interesting idea. If you have Idli batter at home go ahead and try this easy recipe. You can also make this podi idli using leftover idlis too.
