Idli Sandwich

 Left over idlies make a very good evening snack if you use it wisely.My kids love fried idli. Which is shallow fried with ghee or butter.Today i thought of making something new with this left over  idlis and  thought of this  sandwich ..I just suffed it with potato tikki /cutlets and little sauce over it and jsut have it like that and it  was just superb.

Idli-10( cut into 2 slices)
Peas-1/2 cup(boiled)
Ginger-Garlic paste-2tsp
Garam Masala powder-1tsp
Green chilly-2 chopped finely
Red chilly powder-1tsp
Corn flour
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves-1/2 cup( finely chopped)
Mint leaves-1tbsp( finely chopped)

  • Mash the boiled potato and peas and keep aside.
  • Heat a kadai or pan,put 2tsp of oil.
  • In that put cumin and let it splutter .
  • Now add green chilly chopped and saute for a second
  • Now add ginger-garlic paste,chilly powder,garam masala powder one by one and little salt to too.
  • Now add potato-peas mixture and mix it well and switch off the gas.
  • When the mixture cools down sprinkle some coriander leaves ,pudian (mint)and prepare small flat cutlets .Make about 10 cutlets.Now roll all the cutlets into cornflour and keep aside.
  • Now heat a shallow frying pan and fry all the cutlets till crisp on both the sides.
  • The same way start frying idli slices till crisp on both the sides.
  • Now stuff the idlies with the cutlets put some sauce over the cutlet and close it with the idli slice.
  • Serve hot
