Spiced Carrot Mini Idli

After trying out pumpkin,beets,tomato and chocolate for colouring my dishes, here comes one more catchy and colourful cute looking mini carrot idlis as my theme for this whole week of blogging marathon is 'Cooking with colours'.I have told earlier, that i can feed easily my teddies with mini idlis. This time i prepared a special carrot idli batter with cooked carrot puree and usual idli batter.

These cute idlis tastes bit sweet,that why i spiced it simply with pav bhaji masala and idly molagai podi just to mask the bit sweetness of this yummy cute mini idlis.I was bit nervous while serving this idlis as its tastes bit sweet, but for my surprise they just finished the whole plate quickly. An excellent,healthy,attractive and catchy breakfast or dinner to enjoy without any hesitation.Check out other bloggers running this 16th edition of blogging marathon here.Sending to Healthy Food for Healthy Kids - Toddlers Lunch guest hosted by Priya,event by Nithu & my own event Healthy Diet-Breakfast guest hosted by Roshni.
