Idli Fry - South Indian Delight

Hello friends,
Today I have come up with quick, simple and hassle free lunch box item, yes it is idli fry. I think the name says it all, I am not going to say anything more about this recipe. So without any delay…

Here’s how to make idli fry with step by step photos…


Ingredients

Idlis
8 [cut to cubes]
Idli Milagai podi
4 – 5 tsp
Onion
1 finely chopped
Green bell pepper
½ finely chopped
Red chilli powder
1 tsp [adjust to taste]
Turmeric powder
¼ tsp
Salt
As needed
Oil
1 tbsp for frying idlis
Lemon juice
A drizzle

For Tempering

Oil
2 tsp
Mustard seeds
½ tsp
Cumin seeds
½ tsp
Urad dal
½ tsp
Dry red chillies
5
Curry leaves
Few

Method

Cut the idlis to cubes, for idli recipe please click here.

In a kadai heat 1 tbsp of oil and add the idlis. Now add the idli milagai podi and gently stir around without breaking the idlis. The idli milagai podi should be coated on all the idli pieces, fry the idlis for about 5 min on medium flame and switch off the stove.


Transfer the fried idlis to a plate.

Heat 2 tsp of oil in the same kadai, add the ingredients mentioned for tempering one by one.

Now add the onions and saute until they turn golden brown colour.


Add the finely chopped green bell pepper and saute until they turn really soft.


Add the red chilli powder, turmeric powder, salt and stir until the raw smell vanishes.


Now add the fried idlis and stir everything really well and switch off the stove after 2 -3 minutes.

Finally drizzle some lemon juice and mix everything together. Delicious Idli fry is ready to be enjoyed.

Suggestions:
  • Adjust the lemon juice according to your taste.
  • If you do not have capsicums/green bell pepper you can skip it and just follow the same recipe.
  • Sometimes I don’t make it this elaborate, I just fry the idlis with idli milagai podi and just serve it hot or pack it for lunch for my kids.
