Ingredients to make Masala Idlis

  • Idly - 8 - 10, cubed
  • Onions - 1 , thinly sliced
  • Tomatoes - 2, finely chopped
  • Bell peppers (green, yellow and red) - finely chopped
  • Turmeric powder - 1 tsp

How to make Masala Idlis

  1. In a pan, heat the ghee and oil. Once heated, add the pieces of idlis and saute for a couple of minutes, until it begins to crisp up a bit and remove it on a plate.
  2. You can deep fry them in oil if you wish, but this tastes even better.
  3. In the same pan, add the sliced onions, ginger garlic paste, a small pinch of sugar and saute for a couple of minutes.
  4. Add the tomatoes and cook until mushy.
  5. Add the bell peppers, all the spices, some ketchup and salt and cook for a couple more minutes.
  6. Once everything begins to come together, add the idlis, toss well and take it off the heat after a minute.
  7. Serve hot. This tastes great just on its own or you could serve it with some chilled yogurt raita.
My Tip: You can add any vegetables or mushroom or even paneer to this.
