Fried Idli Recipe | Crispy Idli Fry |Easy Leftover Idli Ideas

Fried Idly Recipe

I had some leftover idlis left three days back. When I was thinking how to make use of the leftover idli, this Fried Idli recipe came to my mind. You can make a lot of recipes using leftover idlis like Idly Manchurian, Kaima Idli, Masala Idli, Idli Upma etc. I have already posted Idly Manchurian recipe. This time, I thought I’ll make some crispy fried idlis. It came out very well. The Fried Idlis would be crispy and little hard from outside while soft from inside. You don’t have to make any side dish for this recipe. I made it as a snack for Gj and Sanvi. Sanvi likes any recipe that has Idli Milaga Podi because she loves the podi so much. Even if she is not in the mood to eat dosa or idli, she will still eat it if I serve the same with idli milaga podi. Gj was too tired from work, and he liked the Fried Idli so much. He had enough, but felt hungry within two hours. You can have Fried Idli as a snack, but it would not make your stomach full. This is a very good travel recipe and stays good for 2 days.

Litchee Lemonade Recipe | How to make litchi lemonade | Lemonade Recipes

Lychee Lemonade Recipe

My mom loves Lychee a lot, as she used to have it when she was in Malaysia. Whenever, I go with my mom to market, when she sees Sapotta fruit, she would tell me that Lychee has also got similar appearance but would be quite small. I remember having it in Malaysia, but that was when I was 5 year old. Those days, we get Lychee very rarely in India. I heard from my friends that these days during Summer, you get lychee often. I hope most of you might have tasted the lychee fruit. Still, I can tell you that the white part of the lychee fruit tastes kind of sweet as well as refreshing. All you have to do is peel the red skin of lychee and have the white part of it. Make sure you remove the seed.

Kathirikkai Puli Kuzhambu | Brinjal Puli Kuzhambu Recipe

Kathrikkai Puli Kuzhambu

I should agree that I am not a lover of puli kuzhambu, but once in a while I make it for Gj. For Gj, Puli Kuzhambu should taste spicy and also have a tangy taste. In the past, I have tried several Kathirikkai Puli Kuzhambu recipes but none of them satisfied mine or Gj’s tastebuds. I tried this recipe from Chef. Jacob’s book and it tasted absolutely delicious. Both of us loved it. You can have this kuzhambu with rice and even idli/dosa. Hope you like it!
