Fried Idli

A simple yet flavorful snack. In my opinion, making fried idli is the best use of leftover idlies. I like this so much that I make it with fresh idlis :) It can be served in between meals or as a hearty breakfast

 We first tasted it in my cousin’s place when we had gone for a visit to his place. My bhabhi made this tasty snack for us.The below recipe serves two-three people, but it is so tasty that one person can eat this dish made for two. Lol :-D  

Left Over Idlis - 6
Onion - 2 medium sized – Cut into small pieces
Corriander Leaves - As required
Oil - 2  tablespoon
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Sambhar Masala -3/4 tsp
Green chili - 1
Curry Patta - a spring
Salt - As per taste
Turmeric - A pinch

Cut each idli into 4 pieces. Heat the oil in the pan and add mustard seeds. When it starts to pop add curry patta. After that add onions peices and fry till golden brown. Add cut green chili. Add salt and sambhar masala and turmeric . Add idli peices and fry for few minutes so that this mixture blends well with the fried idlis.Garnish with corriander leaves and serve hot.
