Fried Masala Idli- Restaurant Style


I received this recipe as a entry from Nithu Bala for Iftar Moments. The moment I read this recipe, I knew I definitely have to try this and I did during in the beginning of ramadhan itself. It tasted simply amazing, the aroma released when I was cooking just made me feel like , I was in some Indian restaurant. Do visit from Nithu Bala's site for all her creative and yummy recipes. When  I read her profile she has written that she cooks reasonably good food, she doesn't cook reasonably good food, I would rather say she cooks more than good food.
Serves 2
Ingredients:
Idli- 10
Green Pepper- 1 chopped
Onion- 1 medium sized chopped
Ginger Garlic paste- 1 tsp
Tomato puree- 2 tbsp
Plain Flour - 2 tbsp
Cornflour- 2 tbsp
Chilli powder- 1 tsp
Soya sauce- 1 tsp
Coriander leaves- 2 stalk finely chopped
Oil for frying
Salt as required
Lemon- juice of 1/2 a lemon
Method:
First make a batter by mixing the flour, chilli powder, salt and just enough water to make the batter consistency like fritters. Chop the idli's into cubes. Heat oil in a pan to shallow fry. Dip the idli pieces in the batter and shallow fry them until they are crispy on outside. Set this aside.
Heat a wide non stick pan, add about 1 tbsp of oil, add the onions and ginger garlic paste, and fry it until the onion looks transparent. Then add the green pepper, tomato paste and fry for few minutes. If it looks too dry or burning at the bottom, add some water. Then add the fried idli pieces and coat well with the masala.
Finally add the soya sauce, coriander leaves and mix well. Then add a squeeze of lemon juice on top, take it of from heat, serve warm.
This taste simply amazing just like the restaurant one.
