Tiranga Idli/Tricolor Idli
Who don't know about Idli. Everybody know how to make it. Its not only south Indians who enjoy this healthy steamed delicacy but whole north Indian have this as breakfast, lunch or dinner. But we all need a change. Right. So i always try to keep on changing the basic recipes. Its not a recipe actually its a method to modify idli's taste and don't worry about the texture It will remain same. Actually i made it especially for my two new blogger friends Vigsha and Jagruti Independence Day event. So dear friend this post is dedicated to my Country INDIA and Vigsha and Jagruti. I added green chatni for Green colour in idli and trust me it while i took my first bite, i was amazed with the taste. Even my kids kept on saying mammy green in my tiffin and orange in my tiffin. It was really fun. So please try it and enjoy with your family.

- I made them especially for Independence day event so i used these two colors. You try your favourite sauce/chatni and see the difference.
- If you are serving them with some accompaniment then no need to add salt and onion.
- You you are serving it alone with tea/coffee then add salt in white idli only as sauce and green chatni already had that.
- I normally add onion in idli batter. You can skip it.
