Fried Idli

Ever wondered what to do with the previous day's is an easy snack you can make out of it.
For those who don't know what idli is, here is something about Idli.
Its one of the common breakfast for us, south Indians. Very yummy n  healthy breakfast.
In our home, everyone loves idli, so we hardly have left overs..I make these fried idlis, if at all we are left with some..

You'll need:

Idli: 5-6 nos (each cut into 4 pieces)
Chili powder: 1tsp
Turmeriic powder: 1/4 tsp
Salt: a pinch
Oil: enough for shallow frying
Curry leaves: 2 sprigs

How to make: 
Mix chili pwdr, turmeric pwdr and salt with 2 tsps of water to make a thick paste. Marinate idli pieces with the spice paste and set aside for 15-20 min.
Heat enoguh oil for deep fry in a deep nonstick pan, and fry the idli pieces for 4-5 min or till its golden brown and crispy. In the left over oil, fry the curry leaves for the garnish.
Serve it hot with spicy ketchup or mint chutney...a quick evening snack :)
