BM # 54 Week 3 Day 1
Well this dish is normally born if you have left over idlis..right? Yes and No!
I am personally very fond of idli chilly fry and specially the one they serve at Shiv Sagar in Mumbai. The chilly fry is quite spicy and idli can be easily taken for cottage cheese.The taste is amazing so I never order idli or Dosa there.At home whenever I make idlis, I quickly keep a few aside for my chilly fry.
The idlis have to be cut and batter fried, you just cannot compromise on this, at least I can't the batter fried idlis when mixed with the rest of. The ingredients and sauces fluffs up and absorbs the sauces making it really delicious. The plain simple comforting Idli is transformed into a nice deep fried fritter , and the final outcome is a mind blowing spicy dish!
For this week I have chosen to cook fried food and Idli Chilly Fry is my Day 1 entry.
