Fried Iddlis

Posted by Annita on April 7, 2006

Iddli can be used to make many delicious snacks.I remember how my amma used to make Dahi Vada with fried iddlis .Iddli Uppuma is also very delicious and easy to make.Another quick and easy snack with leftover iddlis.And this is my favorite too.Here’s my recipe :
Idllis – 5
Chopped Onion -1
Green Chillies -2
Grated coconut – 2 tbsp
Curry leaves – a few
Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
Chopped Coriander leaves – 1 tsp
Grated Veggies like carrots,beans,cabbage – 1/2 cup(Optional)
Salt – to taste
Oil – For frying

Cut each iddli into four and deep fry it ,till golden brown.Drain it using a tissue paper and keep aside.Kids will love it just like that with tomato ketchup or chutney.This can be kept in air tight container for 2 to 3 days.This can also be served with little chilly powder sprinkled on it.

But i normally prepare a seperate mixture to add into the fried iddlis.And this is how i do:
In another pan,heat 1/2 tsp of oil.Add mustard seeds and allow it to splutter.Now add chopped onion,curry leaves,green chillies and salt.Saute till onion turns translucent.Add grated coconut and coriander leaves into it,stir well for few seconds.Switch it off and spread the mixture over fried iddlis .Serve hot.(Note :-Grated veggies can be added after the onion is sauteed well.But be sure to cook the veggies first .You can either cook it in a pan or microwave it for 3 mts.)

    Hi Annita, I had this once 3-4 years back at one of my friend's place. They just served fried idli with tomato ketchup and asked me to guess what it is. But I could not guess!!!. The taste was superb. Thanks for the recipe.

    I’v tried this snack and it turned out good. Have prepared twice.
    The first time as same as ur recipe. The second time with a different one with the difference in the masala.I’v sauted chopped onion,tomato(little),masala powder,salt and little turmeric in oil(sprinkle some water if needed) and then added the fried idlis to it. It was good.
    Thanx for the recipe.

  14. Google TV appears to be genuinely wonderful. I’m not sure if I wish to pick up a television with it built-in or a standalone box.

  15. Have you ever considered adding more videos for your blog page posts to preserve the readers more entertained? I imply I just read through the entire write-up of yours and it was fairly very good but since I’m more of a visual learner,I found that to be more helpful effectively let me know how it turns out! I really like what you guys are always up as well. This kind of clever function and reporting! Preserve up the fantastic works guys I’ve added you guys to my blogroll. That is a wonderful post thanks for sharing this informative information.. I will go to your blog regularly for some latest post.
