Kanchipura Iddies

Kanchipuram Iddies
For the long weekend we went to Fossil Rim with my hubby's colleagues family. During lunch his wife served a very colorful and delicious iddies named Kanchipura Iddies. For the first time I'm seeing and hearing such type of iddies. She told me that they well prepare with rice,daals,spice,coconuts,carrots and curd.

Kanchipuram, Kanchi, or Kancheepuram is a city and a municipality in Kanchipuram district in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It is a temple town and the headquarters of Kanchipuram district which is very well known for their historical ancient temples and silk sarres. I'm not really so sure why it's called Kanchipura iddies but believe it's very nutrition for everyone especially the kids. The colorful preparation will definitely appeal the kids to have a bite.
