Idli Masala Fry

I had this snack at one of lunch parties with my friends. It is a great way of utilizing left over idlis. Children love this dish due to tangy and sweet flavor. It also makes a great tiffin item and is a great way to increase the intake of vegetables. All the vegetables available on hand can be included in this recipe. It is also a great way to make a low fat dish for breakfast or as a main course.

6-7 large size idlis
2 tablespoon tomato paste or 2 tablespoon ketchup
1 medium tomato
1 medium onion
1 capsicum
1/2 cup boiled vegetables (choose from peas/corn/beans)
1 teaspoon chili powder
salt for taste
2 teaspoon oil

Heat oil in a skillet and add chopped onion and chopped capsicum. When the capsicum is cooked add the vegetables, diced tomato and tomato paste or ketchup. Saute till the tomato is well cooked. Add chili powder and salt as per taste. Cube the idlis and add them in the masala. Mix well with the paste. Serve hot.

Preparation time: 30 minutes
Serves: 2-3
