Cupcake idlis|How to make Cupcake idlis

Cupcake Idlis are idlis with a difference!!!

These are conventional idlis presented in the most unconventional way....
I got this recipe from a food magazine.I have been making these idlis since 2013.I have also made some changes in the original recipe as per my experience.For example initially I used to grease tart moulds a nd pour the batter in it.But now I place silicon moulds inside tart moulds.This method gives much neater Idli cupcakes.
All said and done this recipe is loved by kids and adults alike.

Preparation time:10 minutes
Cooking time:15 minutes


  1. 2 cups idli batter(1 tbsp vegetable oil and 1 tsp salt added to it)
  2. Coconut coriander chutney/dip
  3. 1 cup milk cream/hung curd(I have used cream)
  4. Chilli flakes for garnish
For coconut coriander chutney/dip:
  1. 3/4 cup grated coconut
  2. 1/4 cup coriander leaves
  3. 1 green chilli
  4. salt as per taste
  5. water(as little as possible)

  1. Take an idli steamer with water.Keep only two tiers of idli mould in it.Dont place the upper two tiers.
  2. Take a tart mould.Place a silicon cupcake mould in it.Pour idli batter in it.
  3. Now place the tart moulds in the idli steamer and cover it.Let this cook for 10 to 15 minutes on high /medium heat.
  4. Preapare the coriander coconut chutney by grinding all ingredients together in a mixer.
  5. Now strain this chutney in a muslin cloth so as to remove all water from it.
  6. Add cream to this chutney and mix well.Add the mix in a piping bag.Pipe the chutney over idli or simple place the chutney on idli with spoon.
  7. Garnish with chilli flakes.Serve hot as starter or cold in kids tiffin box.Happy cooking!!!
