KOTHU IDLI - A LEFT OVER MAGIC


We went to a restaurant called Dosa Calling in Adyar. They have wonderful varieties of dosas. We enjoyed having all kinds of dosas. I love their Manchurian dosa so.. much. They had this kothu idli in their starters. All of us enjoyed having this, and tried this in home it came out well , nowadays i make idlis in excess for making this as a evening snack.
Ingredients


idli - 7 to 8
Onion - 1 big size
tomato - 2
Sambhar powder - 1 tbsp
salt to taste
garam masala - 1/2 tbsp
Oil, mustard seeds , urad dhall, curry leaves for tempering

Method


Chop the idlis in to small cubes.


Heat a kadai with oil and pop up mustard seeds add urad dhall and curry leaves. Add onions and saute till they turn pink.




Add  tomatoes and saute.



Add Sambhar powder and salt and saute 



Saute till the raw smell goes and it leaves oil.



Add the chopped idlis and add little water and close with the lid.

After 2 minutes the yummy kothu lidi is ready

Like all these very healthy recipes! We call this idli upma make it in a similar way -- I too use only multigrain or whole wheat stone ground atta for my phulkas - the demo phulka is awesome :)
