Chilly Idly/ Idly Manchurian

Chilly Idly is  my favorite dish. I got the best review from my husband . If u are a south indian taste lover but need a punch of chinese flavour try this recipe.
Serving for 2

Idily   -- 4 no 
Big Onion  -- 1 cup
Vegetables  -- capsicum all colours ( can use carrot as well)
Tumeric           a pinch
Ketchup           3 tsp
Chili Sauce       1 tsp
Soy sauce         1 tsp
Coriander leaves

  • Refrigerate the cooked  idly for 2 to 3 hrs until hard.
  • Cube the idlies and keep aside,   in a hot oil fry the idly  in a low heat until golden brown.
  • In a pan add onion to oil with capsicum and other veg( optional)  with little salt (add little salt as idly contains salt).
  • Saute the mixture and add idlies along with chili sauce, ketchup, soy sauce.
  • Mix well and  serve  hot.
