THE ROOKIE COOK SERIES #5 : IDLI CHAAT

For the uninitiated, Idli is a staple of South Indian cuisine. It is basically a savoury, steamed rice cake which is extremely soft and spongy in texture. The usual accompaniments to the Idli are Chutney and Sambar.

And Chaat is extremely mouth watering Indian Street Food consisting of Snacks that are sweet, spicy, sour – a treat to your senses.

METHOD

  • In a pan, heat up some oil then add mustard seeds and allow them to crackle. Drop in a few curry leaves and sesame seeds.

  • Now is a good time to add diced idlis and sauté for a minute. If you like your food spicy you can also put chopped green chillies before the idlis.

  • Take off the heat and mix in some coriander-mint chutney. Sprinkle some Bhujia for a bit of crunch.
