A totally off-beat use for idli batter! The Mini Pesto Idlis are made by combining idli batter with the famous Italian pesto sauce, made of basil, garlic and walnuts.
The pesto sauce gives the mini idlis a nutty and herby taste, which we have perked up further with a dash of chilli flakes.
This unique and super-tasty snack is served with a lusciously creamy dip made of olives, cream and cheeses. The olives add a zesty dimension to an otherwise creamy dip.
You can prepare the dip and refrigerate it before, but serve the Mini Pesto Idlis with Olive Cream Cheese Dip immediately after you steam the idlis.
You can try other variations also like Mini Idlis in Coconut Sauce , Moong Dal and Spinach Idli , Oats Rava Idli , Idli Curry , Nutritious Vegetable Idli , Idli Chilli and Stuffed Potato Idli .
