Vegetable Idlis

A colourful and tasty idli recipe that you will enjoy to the core! The batter for making Vegetable Idlis is different from the traditional idli batter, and is ground using coconut milk, which gives it a soothing flavour and soft texture too. Since the vegetables are added to the batter before fermenting, they become semi-soft and get cooked within the same time as the idlis without requiring any separate attention. Serve these delicious idlis with your favourite chutney and sambhar.

Vegetable idlis, mildly flavored with coconut milk, and veggies added to it give a nice variation to regular idli. The fermenting is also of less time. Too good
