We all tend to include more vegetables in every meals might be breakfast, lunch, snack or dinner. Which is actually much required for the body to provide the necessary vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants.

Following the same, here I came up with these spongy Instant Oats Idli / Oats Veg Idli, made with oats as the main ingredient. Though I have used only carrots & fresh coriander, you can add any other finely chopped veggies like beans, capsicum, green peas, cabbage, beetroot.

We had these spongy idli(s) along with these 2 chutney(s)> Instant Coconut Chutney / Kobbari Pachchadi  and Roasted Tomato Chutney / Kaalchina Tomato Pachchadi

Instant Oats Idli / Oats Veg Idli.

These turned out very spongy and all it took from start to finish is just 30 mins, and the quantity served my entire family. I made the chutney(s) fresh while the idli(s) were steaming. So very much suitable for weekdays dinners and even for lunch boxes. The best way to hide veggies for kids who neglect eating their veggies.
