Stuffed Steamed Rice Cakes / Egg Idly

We have a very sweet yet very naughty little girl who's just turned two; and now she has started showing her part of personalities, i always get confused on her taste habit, very picky and at the sametime a total contrast, and i sometime find hard what to make her feed with, i just always keeps trying out something or the other from the usual food recipes, apart from the normal food we give for our little sweetheart. Its not that i give her a list of varieties, just wants a way to make her eat healthy food. That is how i tried giving some plain old normal idlis a makeover with some scrambled egg masala, and to my very surprise it was a great hit with my little love as well as hubby dear, and i was so much delighted to have come up with this.
