Lauki Idli

Idli is one of the best breakfasts ever to be invented on earth in my opinion. They are so light and fluffy and very nutritious. Adding more nutrition into your idlis, sounds good right? Lauki or bottlegourd or doodhi or sorekayi is a great vegetable. It has so much goodness, so incorporating this goodness into steamed idlis, it gets my thumbs up. Lauki idli is one of the best ways to feed fussy kids with some lauki.
All lauki idli needs is some preparation in the form of soaking some idli rice. Idli rice or fat grained rice is best for this recipe, you can get this type of rice in any Indian grocery store. I have also added some upma rava or sooji into the batter to make the idli light and to give it some extra texture. Lauki cannot be seen or detected in this idli and when you steam the lauki idli it brings a sweet aroma.

Make lauki idli for breakfast and serve with coconut chutney or dahi chutney. All the extra spices like jeera and black pepper makes the lauki idli really delicious.
