Over the next few weeks I will put up recipes that are derived from Idlis. What do I mean by this ? We prepare idlies in our daily life especially for breakfast. Normally some of these are left over and no one looks forward to having the same thing later in the day. So we normally would like to eat them in slightly different form.
First in the series of “recipes from excess Idlis” is the simplest – shallow-fried Idlis. Not that this requires a separate recipe post but for the benefit of beginners I am putting it up anyway.
What you need to have:
– Ready to eat idlies 10-15
– Oil to fry Around 2 tablespoons
Ready to serve Rice rava idlies
What you do with what you have:
1. Slice each idli into 2 slices so that it will be easier to fry them.
2. Place a Dosa gridle on medium flame and add cooking oil to it. On heating spread the idli slices spray cooking oil and fry on both the sides of it till it turns light brown as shown in the image below. One can even enjoy it with pure ghee and honey or even with Jaggery syrup and ghee.

3.Serve hot with either dry chutney powder or even any wet chutney.
