Chilli Idli

Chilli Idli
Successfully I am finishing my blogging marathon group one by today..My Theme for group one is 15 min Quick Breakfast,So if you want the set of my 7 day quick breakfast recipes just check below.....I am gonna participate in the coming weeks too.So please keep checking it out....Today’s dish gonna be Chilli Idli...This is a ultimate dish for the leftover idli’ mum’s way of using leftover idli is she will just crumble the idli and mix it with idli podi and then she will stir-fry that in oil..But this is another way of doing it..This is so good that it doesn’t taste like idli(BTW..I don’t like idli so much).In this I fried the idli’s that what gives extra taste..but if you wish not to deep fry you could just use it as it is.. So please try this and let me know what you think....
