Ginger Idli

Today I am posting a variety snack recipe with left over idli's. I think definitely minimum 1 or 2 idli's or sometimes more will be left over whenever we prepare idlis's. I got this recipe from a cookery show, I experimented, it was very tasty, new flavored one, specially soft idly pieces with combination of ginger onion paste can be gobbled away with the whole plate.

Idli's - 4 (Cutted into cubes)
Ginger - 2 teaspoons(Finely chopped)
Onion paste - 1/2 cup
Green Chillies - 2
Salt - 1/2 teaspoon 
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Oil - 1 tablespoon


  • Heat oil in a kadai, add chopped ginger, green chillies, saute for 2 minutes, then add onion paste, salt, turmeric powder and saute for till it turns light brown.

  • Add Idli cubes and saute for few minutes so as masala is well coated to idli cubes.

  • Seve as a snack.


  1. Adding onion paste must be giving a different taste! Nice and flavourful! I haven't posted sambar podi yet dear. I'll try to post it soon:)

  2. I second Nandini, never tried adding onion paste.
