HOW TO MAKE IDLI CHAAT
Step 1 / 4 Fry The Idlis
To prepare this yummy chaat recipe, cut the idlis into bite sized cubes.
Next, make a thin batter by mixing together rice powder, chilli powder, asafoetida powder, salt and water. Then, heat coconut oil in a pan over medium flame.
Once the oil is hot enough, dip these idli cubes in the batter and deep fry them till they are golden brown in colour. Once the idlis are done, keep them aside.
Step 2 / 4 Prepare Coconut-Coriander Chutney
Now, grind together grated coconut, green chilli, ginger, coriander leaves and salt to make smooth coconut-coriander chutney.
Then, beat thick curd to get a smooth consistency. Add 2 tablespoons of coriander chutney to it and mix well. Adjust the salt as per taste at the end.
Step 3 / 4 Prepare The Tempering
Heat some coconut oil in a pan over medium flame and add mustard seeds in it along with urad dal. Saute them for a few seconds and then add small onions, ginger and green chili in it.
Fry the onions till they turn golden brown in colour. Turn off the flame and add a pinch of asafoetida over the fried onions.
Step 4 / 4 Ready To Be Served
Put the fried idlis into curd, add the fried onions, top off with chopped coriander leaves and lastly garnish with chilli powder. Your Ildi Chaat is now ready to be served.
