Kids often get bored and do not want to eat the same old, plain but healthy stuff. A little effort to reinvent the thing might just be the motivation that the child needs to eat the same dish. Here we have converted regular idlis to sweet, sandwiched dessert which looks nothing like its original.

You may use any kind of idli to make this dessert. It could be rice idli, raw idli or ragi idli that you can use to make this sandwich dessert.
