Veg. Idlis are not only colorful and delicious but also very healthy. Many parents have problems making their kids to eat veggies .  By serving these Idlis you can encourage  your kids to eat vegetables.

I made simple  variation. But you also try Potato, Carrot, coriander, Cabbage, Cauliflower and many more vegetables of your choice.

Enjoy Happy and Healthy Cooking.
