Mini Vegatable Uthappam

 Idli is one dish which my daughter refuses to eat. A
south Indian, particular a madrasi and does not eat idli is highly unacceptable…well,
that is what my family thinks. I have tried to give her idli with different
chutney’s and sambhar and all my attempts failed. Finally I decided to make
uthappam with some vegetables with the same batter and the resistance came down
considerably. Here is how she liked to eat uthappam when she was a kid
