Mini Pepper Podi Idli | Pepper Podi Idli Recipe | Milagu Podi Idli Recipe

Pepper Podi Idli
Milagu Podi Idli / Mini Pepper Idli Recipe is a simple kids friendly breakfast or lunch box recipe. You can even serve this as a after school snack for kids. This is almost similar to my Podi Idli except the addition of freshly crushed black pepper. I made this long back when my kid was caught with cold and cough. I wanted to have him Milagu Rasam and Rice but he doesn't like rasam rice and asked whether he could have idli, so suddenly this idea came to my mind and the Milagu Podi Idli was super hit with kids and they loved it a lot. You don't even need any special side dish for this ildi, just  a ketchup is enough. But you can also serve with Tiffin Sambar or Chutney.

When I was sick and took break from blogging, My Mom insisted me to post at least the recipes in my draft to keep my blog alive. As, she knows how much effort, time and energy I put for this blog in my initial days to get recognition and genuine appreciation. She always worried for my blog that I am not continuing my hard work  and kept insisting me to keep my blog updated now and then. But, lazy me never listened to her, at least from now i wanted to follow her words. I have so many recipes in my draft that i can post for another 3-4 months, hopefully will update all those recipes soon. Also, I wanted to thank my readers who took time to read my post and write to me. Your emails and messages means a lot to me, your few words are helping me to stay strong. Thank you so much for your love and support. My mom used to say that always good things come to good people and I am blessed to have such good hearts around me. Thanks again and keep supporting.
