How to make

  • To begin making the Carrot & Cheese Filled Idli Recipe, we will first mix together grated carrot and cheese. Keep this aside.
  • Preheat the Idli Steamer with water.
  • Grease idli plates with a drop of two of sesame oil for each cavity. Fill in less than half of the idli batter in the moulds.
  • Spoon in the carrot cheese mixture and spread it evenly on the batter later. Finally top this layer with another round of the Idli Batter to make a sandwich idli.
  • Steam the idlis in an idli steamer for about 10 minutes on high heat and turn off the heat. After 10 minutes, the idlis should be steamed completely.
  • Allow the steamed idlis to rest for a few minutes and remove them from the moulds and cut them into quarters.
  • Serve the Carrot & Cheese Filled Idli Recipe along with Sambar and Tomato Onion Chutney for breakfast or even a light dinner.
