Usually Idly fry is made with mini idlys (small idlys). This is something I order for sure when I go to my favourite restaurant in Chennai. Since I dont have a mini-idly plate here in Cairo, I make it by chopping left over Idlys made in the normal Idly plate. And whenever I make this, it gets over in matter of SECONDS!!!!
Idly : 16
Oil: 1 cup
Idly Chutney Powder: 2 tbsp
Chilly Powder: 1.5 tbsp (You can increase or decrease according to your tolerance level)
Salt: as required
Chop the Idlys into bite size pieces
Deep fry till light brown.
Drain it on absorbant paper and coat it with either Idly chutney powder or Chilly powder and salt.
Serve hot as starters.
