Crazy, Easy and Yummy Snack

Crazy, Easy and Yummy Snack

I called it crazy because I used unusual combination of ingredients for this snack. Just threw in leftovers from the refrigerator and turned it into a delicious snack. But trust me, it is super delicious.

  • 1 cup Leftover Idli Batter
  • 2 Leftover Idlis
  • 2 Hamburger Buns
  • 4 tsp Rice Flour
  • 1 small Onion, finely chopped
  • 4 or 5 Green Chilies, finely chopped
  • Some Cilantro Leaves, finely chopped
  • Salt as needed
  • Oil to deep-fry
  1. Take idli batter into a large bowl. Add onions, cilantro, green chilies and rice flour to the batter.
  2. Crush the idlis coarsely with hand and add to the batter.
  3. Dip the buns in water, squeeze to remove excess water and press with hand to make a paste. Add this to the batter too.
  4. Mix the batter well to make sure there are no lumps. No need to add any water to the batter as it needs to be thick like pakoda batter. Add salt to the batter and mix well.
  5. Pour the oil in a pan and heat. When it becomes hot, take small portions of the batter with a spoon and carefully drop into the hot oil. Fry till they turn golden brown in color and take out from the oil.
  6. Transfer them to a paper towel to get rid of excess oil. Repeat the same process with the remaining batter.
  7. Enjoy this hot and yummy snack with a cup of tea/coffee. Perfect on a rainy day!!
  8. Yummy!!
