Idly Fry



This is yet another dish made by my DH.My mom used to make fried idly whenever we refused to eat plain idlis.But she would just fry and saute with idly molagai podi.This recipe is little bit different.

Warning:You will definitely need more idlis than  you used to eat usually, to prepare this dish cuz this tastes sooooo good..When I ate this I was so guilty of my gluttony:)
Ingredients:

Idlis  - 6 (completely cooled and cut into cubes)

Onion - 1 finely chopped

Capsicum - 1 diced

Green chillies - 2(slit into two pieces)

Chili powder - 1 tsp

Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp

Idly molagai podi/Gunpowder - 2 tsp

Oil for deep frying the idlis

Oil - 2 tbsp

Salt to taste

Method:

Deep fry the idlis.
Deep Fried Idlies..I saved a few pices for the dish:)


In a pan heat oil.When it is hot,add the onions and saute till it is translucent.

Then add the green chillies, capsicum and saute for 2 minutes.Add the chillipowder,turmeric powder, idli molagai podi,required amount of salt.

Now add the fried idli pieces and saute.Sprinkle little bit of water,cover the pan with a lid and cook on a low flame  for 3 minutes.

Thanx Jenn!!Idlis are steamed rice cakes which are made by steaming a batter made by grinding black gram lentils and rice.Then we ferment the batter for about 8 hours.It is a staple breakfast of South India.
