Colorful Mini Idlis For Kids - Cocktail Mini Idlis

Last week Prajju had Circle day in his school and kids were asked to bring Idly for their snacks. I was planning to send him mini idlis, but then I did not want to be the usual mini idlis. I had some mint chutney in hand which he loves the most. Idly podi is also his favorite. So I thought of giving a slight twist to the regular ones. And I had arranged them in a toothpick too. They looked very appealing, the moment Prajju saw his snack box in the morning he was very excited, needless to say the snack box was empty when he returned home :-)


Mini Idlis - 10
Idly podi -1 tbsp
Mint Chutney - 2 tbsps
Oil - 1 tbsp


Prepare the mini idlis and store in a hot pack. When you are about to serve or pack the snack/lunch box make these colorful and flavor ful mini idlis.

Preferably in a non-stick kadai, heat few tsps of oil and add the idly podi to it and give a quick stir. Then add 5 or any number of mini idlis as per your need to it and toss well until it is coated evenly with the podi on all sides.  Mini Podi Idli is ready. Transfer to a seperate bowl.

In the same kadai add few more tsps of oil and add the mint chutney, a quick stir and then add the remaining idlys. Mix well until it is evenly coated on all sides. Switch off the flame and transfer to the bowl. Mini mint idlis are ready too.

Take a toothpick and arrange these idlis and per your preference and pack them to your kids lunch box.!!
