A wonderful make over with the left over Idly would definitely be this Kaima Idly recipe.Left over Idlis are deep fried in oil ,sauteed with some veggies and finally garnished with coriander leaves and lime juice.As the Idlies are deep fried they tend to absorb more oil,so it is very important to consume them immediately after being prepared.
I make this along with other breakfast for I don’t prefer having this alone, mainly for the excess oil in it.But it is so delicious and you can’t have them in limited quantity.The addition of fennel seeds(saunf) and ginger garlic paste enhances the flavour of this dish.You can serve this as an evening snack for kids from school with just ketchup they would definitely ask for more.An easy and quick recipe that could be done in no time, also a brilliant recipe to use the left over Idlis at home.
