Corn-Daliya Idli

Swaraj my 14 month old kid has recently started having solid food. Since the time he has been introduced to solids, I am inspired to cook something different almost everyday.  As a mommy you definitely do not want the kid to have  outside food. Besides he seems to be a foodie..or perhaps he has not developed choices yet 😉 which gives me a reason to do my food experiments on him.

Pediatrician said that Daliya twice a week is good. Kheer, upma and pulav are obvious choice from Daliya.  But I  was willing to do something else.

So thought of making IDLIs using the same.To add some more value, I added corn to it. Check out the recipe!!
