Fried Idli

I have seen this recipe on my visit to India this time. It was aired on a Telugu Channel , I believe Maa TV but I am not sure. This has been by far the best Fried Idli I have ever eaten. It is made like a curry except the main ingredient is Idli.

4-5 Idlis, cubed. A day old idlis work best but also fresh made idlis after cooling down works well too.
1 Medium Potato, peeled, cubed and boiled
1 Tomato
3 green chillies
1/4 cup boiled Peas or Carrots or both
3-4 fresh curry leaves
1 tsp ginger garlic paste, optional
1 tsp Red Pepper
1 tsp cumin seeds
  • Heat a tablespoon of oil in a pan
  • Add cumin seeds, chillies and curry leaves. Fry them for a min
  • Stir in the ginger garlic paste
  • Add the tomato and potato and cook till soft.
  • Add the cubed idlis to the mixture.
  • Mix till the idlis get coated nicely with the tomato and potato mixture.
  • Add salt and red pepper powder
  • Garnish with cilantro and serve with a lemon wedge
