Idli Kababs – fun way to introduce veggies

Idli Kababs are basically kababs made with mini Idlis. These kababs are a healthy variation as I have used the puree of Spinach and Beetroot.
Feeding vegetables to my kids on a daily basis is a struggle which I face very often. I am always up with some of the other recipes wherein I can hide the veggies which they would not eat otherwise.  Also, iron-rich foods are a must for everyone.

My daughters are fond of Idlis (thank god) so I usually have some scope to do a variation. I so wanted to feed beetroot and spinach to them and just thought about having some fun and colorful mini idlis.

So I finally hit the kitchen with my mission IDLI KABABS.  I also involved my daughters in making them and they had a great time. It was a fun and healthy project which was successful and worth every effort.

Finally, a grin on my face when my daughter’s relished it with love even more because they had put in that little effort in preparing them. It is very simple… healthy and a creative recipe that can be fed to your kids with a healthy dose of love.
