Fried Idly Snack – A leftover recipe







Hi foodies, today morning I had idli and chutney for breakfast. My husband doesn’t like idlis, I mean the traditional way of eating idlis with sambar or chutney. So I make a quick snack using the idlis to make it edible for him. You can try the same with leftover idlis and add your own flavour according to your taste and imagination.

The plain Jane idlis

What I used for this recipe?

Idlis – 4 cut into cubes

Onion Sliced – 1 big

Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp

Chilly powder – 1/2 tsp

Garam Masala – 1/2  tsp

Mixture or Sev or any such snack – 2 tbsp. I have used Haldiram mixture

Oil – 2 tbsp

Salt – as required.

Curry leaves – as required for flavour

Corriander leaves – for garnishing

How to prepare

Heat oil in a frying pan. Saute and fry the onions and curry leaves adding salt. I always add little bit of salt while frying the onions since it makes the onion get fried quickly. Once the onion slices are golden brown, add the idli cubes and fry well. Sprinkle all the powders and salt over it. Mix well.
