Vegetable Rava Idli


Vegetable Rava Idli


Big challenge daily. What to cook in breakfast. Tasty, healthy, instant and my kid should love it. Normally south Indian food is loved at my home. My daughter usually eat Idli with chutney or sugar but avoids eating with sambhar. I am dissatisfied with this combo as she is not consuming full nutrients.

I prepared this rava idli, which is quite healthy, easy, very soft and i have added veggies like carrot and capsicum with some cashew nuts so that I can give content what i want to give to my family.

If we have some guests and we have to quickly prepare some fancy breakfast where we don't need to prepare sambhar, we can simply go for this option. This is itself a complete meal with chutney and a cup of coffee or tea. Good outdoor tiffin option as well.
