    1. You have to fry idlies in very very hot oil. Put idlies in fridge for 1 or 2 hours before frying

  8. I cooked this today for my wife. It turned out to be excellent. I used to order from a local restaurant. First 2 times it was good but later it was so boring and tasteless. So I thought of making it myself. And your recipe was simple but the one I was looking for. Thank you :)
