baked idli-fry
I have never ate idli fry with podi until last  month when I had these in a Birthday party I went. It was Aj’s classmate’s birthday and his mom had made most of the things herself in the party menu. I was totally dumb stuck seeing all those items prepared by herself. Though she as a helper with her, it needs lots of interest and passion towards cooking for a party. Among the starters, she had kept this podi idli fry and I first thought it was potato wedges, then later realised it is fried idli wedges tossed with idli podi. I decided the next instance to try at home and tried this baked version. It came out super crisp and its best way to use the leftover idlies for a change from the idli upma. Thank you Purnima for the idea Happy. You can do the same by deep frying too.

Crispy idli fry recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Snack
Prep Time: 5 mins    |  Cook time: 20 mins    Serves: 3

Ingredients


Idli (leftover)  6 
Sesame oil  2 tblsp 
Idli podi   As needed 

 

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 190 oC. Cut the idlies into wedges as shown in the picture. Sprinkle and mix sesame oil generously to coat it evenly.1-cut
  2. Arrange it in a baking tray and bake it for 10 - 12 minutes. Take it out and turn over the idlies.bake,turn
  3. Bake again for 10-12 minutes or until golden in colour. Transfer to a bowl and toss it with idli podi as needed while it is hot. Sprinkle more sesame oil if needed.3-toss

Notes

  • Same can be done by deep frying the idli wedges too. It takes a while to get fried and oil too is absorbed more.

Serve hot with tomato chilli sauce or sauce of your choice. You can even make chutney to go well with this. It stays crisp even after cooled down.

  9. Hi Raks, I have a Microwave Oven. Was wondering if I do it in that, would I still get the same crispy idlis as seen in your pics. Do you use an OTG or a MWO?
