A multi-flavoured delicacy prepared with fresh or leftover idlis, the Idli Curry has a pleasing texture and a tongue-tingling flavor, thanks to tangy tomato pulp, peppy spice powders and pastes, and a pinch of sugar to highlight all other flavours.

You can prepare this as a quick Breakfast using the previous day’s idli’s or prepare it fresh as a snack. It is tasty enough to be served as a starter at a Party too.
