Idlis are a great breakfast option and one of my favourite. These healthy South Indian breakfast are anytime welcome with coconut chutney and sambar. Turn them into something interesting and appealing for your loved ones. Kids will love them for sure.
So go ahead and create this yummy designer multi coloured idli cake. They are an excellent lunch box meal too. For this you need to follow a step by step method with pictures to make this amazing visual treat.
- 5-6 cups idli batter
- pinch of red colour
- pinch of green colour
- pinch of yellow colour
- few drops of oil to grease
Divide the batter into 4 bowls. Add the red colour in one bowl, green colour in the second and yellow colour in the third. Mix well. Let the last bowl remain as it is for the white colour.
Grease a steel plate and pour a small ladle of the green batter first followed by the white, yellow and red batter or as you wish.
With a toothpick draw lines from the middle to the edge of the steamed idli cake or vice versa for some beautiful pattern.
Steam for 13-15 minutes. When it cools down, run a knife around the edges to loosen it. Then gently unmold the cake. Serve this delicious creation with coconut chutney and sambar.
