ABOUT Tricolour Idli Burgers.... RECIPE

This is just an idea to feed fussy kids and the same traditional Idlis are just arranged in this manner to please my kids. This is a yummy vegetarian version with no meat or chicken. Just plain idlis with some veggies and coconut chutney. Tomato onion chutney can also be used as a spread in this. Go for natural colours with boiled spinach puree for the green colour and turmeric and besan for the orange colour.
