Its been long that I blogged, and the Just for You event hosted by Alka was just enough to get me back to blogging.



When I made these Palak Idli and told my niece Jaanu (6 years) I made green Idlies and she promptly said maachi I don't like green please make pink idlies. Then I asked around for ideas and the best bet was to use beetroots. Jaanu these Pink Idlies are Just For You.

Ingredients

Idli Batter, to make 12 idlies.
1/4 cup beetroot
1 cups water
salt to taste
a pinch baking soda

Method

  1. Boil the beetroot in the water. Drain and keep the water aside.
  2. Slowly add the beetroot water 1 tbsp at a time to the idli batter to get the desired color and consistency. (The idlies will be lighter in color once cooked)
  3. Add the baking soda to 1 tsp of water (depending on how much you have to add to the idli batter). Add it to the idli batter. Mix well.
  4. Steam the idlis immidiately. (Cook them how you would normally).
