Let’s see how to make tasty kid’s breakfast recipe – Mini Masala Idli

Here I used regular idli batter. There will be a link in the description box for the video on how to make idli batter

We need to make idlis now

Unlike the regular idlis, here I used a plate for smaller idlis.

Spread oil on the plates and pour the idli batter

Cook the idlis in a pressure cooker or idli cooker

Pour water in the cooker, place the idli plates and close lid without the gasket or weight(whistle)

Cook on high flame for 5 minutes and then on medium flame for the next 10 minutes

Let the cooker cool down and open the lid

Move all the mini idlis into a bowl

These mini masala idlis could be made by chopping up the big idlis also, but making them with these small idlis will make them much more interesting to eat

Heat 1 1/2 tablespoon oil in pan

Add 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds, 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds, 2 teaspoons bengal gram, 1 teaspoon black gram and fry

Fry till the grams change colour

Then add 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder, 1/2 cup curry leaves and fry

Also add 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder and mix

Here I added curry leaves powder. Any other masala powder like idli karam podi or sambar powder could also be used

If any of these are not available, then add coriander seeds powder

Add 1 1/2 teaspoon curry leaves powder

Add prepared idlis and mix

Then add coriander leaves and fry

Mini masala idlis are ready

Instead of small idlis, you can chop up the normal sized idlis to make the masala idlis

Mini masala idlis are ready to serve!
