For sometime before active blogging, I was following few other peoples' lovely blogs which actually inspired me to have a space to share recipes I try in my kitchen. Madhuram is one of those many who were my inspirations. I am still not confident with my baking prowess but I try her other recipes whenever they are made differently from what I usually do. Her colourful cocktail idlis where such a hit with me that I try them with whatever chutney I have or whichever varietion I can think of.
Please visit Madhuram's very own space for her recipe of cocktail idlis.
I made them with tomato chutney, pudina chutney and coconut chutney.
Also that I made them in mini moulds to have bite size idlis.
What you require:
3 X12 mini idli moulds
30 tablespoons idli batter
4 table spoons each of the above mentioned chutneys
What you should do:
Grease the idli moulds and keep ready.
Divide the batter into three parts. Mix with each part, one chutney of choice. The batter will itself be very colourful now.
Pour them into prepared moulds and steam in a steamer for 8-10 minutes.
Remove and serve the mini idlis colourful and decorated.
Madhuram suggests that the chutneys shall be a bit more spiced as they would tone down when mixed with idli batter. But I made them with normal spice as it would delight the kids too.
I've used carrot strips, tomato strips, cut carrots, bits of idlis and tomatoes as well as Milagai podi for the garnish.
