Idli Fry

Here's another recipe which is a leftover transformation. Though this post/ recipe was something we were contemplating about posting it or not. Why? Because the recipe is so simple that it didn't really call for blog space. But, at the brighter side, we thought for all those people who haven't heard or tasted anything like this, its gonna be a big miss.

Ingredients

Left over Idlis (Cut up into strips): As per your need
Chilli powder to your liking
Salt to taste
Oil to fry
A few curry leaves for garnish

Heat some oil in a pan, add the cut up Idlis, sprinkle salt and chilli powder and saute until it coats well on the Idlis. Once the Idlis start to slightly crispen on the sides, tear up the curry leaves. Take it off the heat. Serve hot with your evening cup of tea.

  29. thanks everyone for dropping by and for those wonderful comments...
    @deepti its neither shallow fry nor deep fry.. we used very little oil like we use in seasoning/Tadka just enough for chili powder to coat on the idlis... or you can use oil spray...
