Fried Idly

I had this fried Idly in Saravana Bhavan a few weeks back. I wanted to try fried idly this time. I used the left over idllies for making this fried idly. Since I just wanted to try this recipe, I used a little amount of ingredients. Here is the recipe for making fried idly

Ingredients:-
  1. Idly - 3
  2. Tomato - 1/2 (chopped)
  3. Onion - 1/2 (chopped)
  4. Green chillies - 1
  5. Salt to taste (only for onion and tomato)
  6. Turmeric powder - a pinch
  7. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
  8. Mustard seeds - little less than 1/4 tsp
  9. Cumin seeds - little less than 1/4 tsp
  10. Tomato ketchup - 1/2 tsp
  11. Coriander leaves to garnish.
  12. Oil - to fry idllies

First cut idllies into small cubes. Pre heat oil and fry the idllies to golden brown. Keep it aside. Pre heat a drop of oil in a pan, splutter mustard seeds and cumin seeds, add asafoetida powder. Now add onions and fry it till it becomes transparent. Now add tomato to it , add turmeric powder, salt and cook it for another 5 mts. Add a little bit of water to it, so that tomato and onion cooks nicely. It will become like a paste or like thokku. Now add the ketchup to it and mix it well. Now add the fried idlies to it and mix it well. Garnish it with corinader leaves. Serve it hot with onion raita. We can also add a pinch of garam masala powder to the tomato onion thokku.
