Let’s see another breakfast idea for kids.

I have already made a video on how to make idli sandwich, link will be in the description.

Here I took 1 cup idli batter, add some water to it

Pour water till normal idli batter consistency is obtained

Now add 1/2 teaspoon salt and mix

Then Add 1 /4 teaspoon soda, 2 teaspoon oil and mix

Put a spoon of this aside for the green chutney

Here I used green chutney to make the sandwich

Any other chutney like coriander leaves chutney or sauce could be used

The green chutney used here is made by using mint leaves, coriander leaves, ginger green chillies, lemon juice, salt and grinding them all together

Mix this chutney with the 1 spoon idli batter we put aside

It is now time to steam the idli batter prepared before

Steam these idlis

We will need a wide bowl to make the sandwich

First, spread oil on the pan

Now, pour half of the idli batter in the pan

If you want the sandwich to be thinner, pour less batter or else make the layer thicker

Carefully spread the batter all over the pan

Pour 2 glasses of water in a steamer or bowl and boil it

As the water gets to boil, place a stand inside the bowl and put the idli bowl on the stand

Close the lid of steamer and cook for 5 minutes on medium flame

Open the lid after 5 minutes, we can see that the idli batter hardened a little

Put the stove on low flame and spread the green chutney over the cooked idli

Close lid and cook for 5 more minutes

Open the lid. We can see that the green chutney has also hardened.

Now, pour the rest of the batter on top of this green chutney

Close lid and cook for 15 minutes

Pole with a knife to see if the idli has cooked all the way

If the knife comes out clean, then it means that the idli sandwich has cooked perfectly

Take it out from the steamer and let it cool down

After it cools down a bit, separate the edge of the bowl and the sandwich with a knife

Then flip it using a plate

Flip it again

Cut this idli sandwich into pieces of desired size and shape

We can see that the idli sandwich looks yummy with 3 layers

We can also prepare tempering for it like we make for dokhla

For tempering, heat 1 tablespoon oil in a pan

Then Add 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds and fry

Then Add 2 sliced green chillies, 1/2 cup curry leaves and fry

A pinch of asafoetida could also be added

Spread this tempering over the idli sandwich

Tasty special breakfast, idli sandwich is ready to serve!

Let’s see how to make Crispy Attu

If there is leftover idli batter and it has turned sour, you can use it to make this crispy attu recipe

To a mixing bowl, add 1/2 cup bombay rava and mix it with water till idli batter consistency is obtained and mix it

Add a pinch of salt along with chopped onions, 1 chopped green chilli, 2 tablespoons grated carrots, chopped coriander leaves, 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds and mix

Then Add some water and mix

Let it sit for 10 minutes and then add 1 cup idli batter

Make the batter very thin by adding water

Then Heat pan and spread oil on it

Pour the dosa batter on the pan and cook on high flame for 2-3 minutes

Flip after one side turns brown and cook for another couple of minutes

These dosas stay fresh for atleast 2-3 days. These are great for journeys.
