The Vegetable Idli is a beautiful potpourri of flavours, colours and textures, which your child is sure to enjoy.

The soothing taste of coconut milk together with the fresh flavour of vegetables is enough to make this idli variant a runaway hit with kiddos.

A soft and safe food, this is not likely to choke babies of 10-12 months’ age. So, you can cut these idlis into strips and serve them attractively, so your baby will try to feed herself – a necessary life-skill that must be initiated from this wee age itself!
