Idli Sandwich/ Sandwich idli

Sandwich Idli

A hot item for parties.
Easy to prepare.

For idli batter see my earlier post.
For Mint chutney see my earlier post.

1. Grease Idli plates with little Oil and pour 1/2 ladle of batter and cook for 3 minutes.
2. Apply Mint chutney (spread it)
3. Pour again 1/2 laddle of batter and steam it.

Kids who hate Idlis can be attracted with this.

Note: In the Mint Chutney you may also reduce the Coconut and add more Coriander leaves.
Another colourful version of this Sandwish can be made with Onion Tomato Chutney and for more varieties see here.

Hi MT:
Please come up with some ideas for kiddy snacks. My son is a horrible eater... well this partially explains why he is so lanky.
Anyhow... some good snacks involving veggies/ fruits would be a gr8 way to infuse things in this stomach... so pleazzzzzzzzze think of something.

Hi MT: What a neat idea, I love it. Vijay is taking lunch box these days, I should pack these for him. He likes idlies and these sandwiches are going to be something different.

Thanks for sharing such a cool recipe idea with us. and also the legiyam recipe. It's been a while since I had any legiyam.
