Masala Corn Idli is a recipe which combines the flavors of North Indian tadka with South Indian Idli.
We simply love Idli here at home. My son too is fond of Idli and I can rely on it whenever he is acting fuzzy or is not eating anything. Even though it is a south Indian main menu item, my husband prefers it over paratha in his breakfast. That's why we call him southie as he is a north Indian but has eating habits of a south Indian
Another reason for this name is his love for rice. He is crazy about eating rice and can have it in all three meals a day.
So, I am always on the look out for recipes that are built around Idlis and this one is one of them. It can act as a healthy and delicious snack for kids and elders.
Also, we normally make this masala corn idli on days when we have some of the Idli's left from the morning breakfast. We use them in evening snack to make this snack.
Adding some corns to the idli makes it come alive with vibrant yellow color. I have also added Onions and Capsicum to add some vegetable flavors too. You can even try adding peas or carrot to experiment.
