If you have lots of left over idilis and wondering what to do with them, then here is a simple and tasty recipe. I am sure many of us idli lovers would eat them any how...but for some people out there who don't like idli, this is a tasy option.
Apart from the ingredients mentioned below, you can make this more healthier by adding vegetables like carrot, beans, bell peppers etc.
Here is the recipe.
Idlis - 10
Onion chopped - 1 big
Chilli chopped - 2
Mustard - 2 tsp
Urad dal - 2 tsp
Coconut scrapped - 5-6 tbsp
Curry leaves - 5
Coconut oil or ghee - 3 tbsp
Turmeric - a pinch
Coriander leaves chopped - 3 tbsp
Mash the idlis coarsely in hand. (Note that the idlis should not be mashed to a paste).
Heat the oil/ghee in a pan. Add the urad dal. When it turns brown add the mustard. When the mustard splutters add the turmeric and chilli and fry once.
Add the curry leaves and chopped onion and fry till the onion turns golden.
Add the coriander leaves and fry once.
Then add the coarsely mashed idlis and salt and mix well. Add the scrapped coconut and serve hot. Generaly we eat it without any side dish as it is very tasty by itself. But you can serve this with chutney or sauce.
