Curd idli - Thayir Idli - Simple and healthy snack - Snack recipe

My kids are very big fans of Thayir / yogurt. So I make lot of yogurt based dish. I have posted Thayir vada (Fried). Thayir Vada (baked)Mor kuzhambu / kulambu Idli in my space before. I actually make these as evening snack esp during weekends. But this can be good healthy after school snack for kids. 

Mini idli  - 20 to 25 or Sliced idli pieces - 3 cups to 4 (U can use varagu rice idli or normal idli)
Yogurt - 300g ( I have used greek yogurt)
Grated coconut - 2 tablespoon
Green chillies - 2-3 (adjust to your spice level)
Cashew nuts - 1 tablespoon
Roasted Cumin powder - 1 teaspoon
Red chilli powder - for garnising
Coriander leaves - 1 tablespoon (finely chopped)
Grated carrot - 2-3 tablespoon


Grind coconut, green chillies and cashews with 1/4 cup of curd. And add rest of the yogurt. And whip it. Add salt and cumin seeds powder and whip once
Arrange idlis in broad plate. And pour the beaten yogurt over. And sprinkle Carrot, red chilli powder and coriander leaves. 
Keep it in fridge for 30 mins and serve. I prefer it this way if not you can serve as it is. If you have sweet chutney, Green chutney u can use it also.
