Vegetable Idli And Cheese Uthappam

Vegetable Idli And Cheese Uthappam

Idli, Dosa and Uthappam are a staple of every South Indian home. They are very popular as breakfast items and are eaten all over India. Vegetable Idli And Cheese Uthappam are made with a little twist to the regular Idli and Uthappam.

Idli is the healthiest dish made by steaming. I have added a little vegetable to the otherwise white Idli’s to give it some texture and colour, thus making it more appealing and tempting. The Uthappam with melted cheese on top is equally tempting.

Try this combination and I am sure it will be a treat for the family and friends. Serve along with Coconut Chutney, Tomato Chutney and Sambhar.
