Modern Podi Idly

Idly is the most famous food in Southern part of India. It is our breakfast dish. But to eat Idly often becomes really boring. My aunt and uncle had come to my place for thanks giving and we were thinking of a breakfast. When i told my aunt i had idly batter, she gave me this easy recipe. We all loved it.. Idly is no more a boring dish. We can have it as a snack too. So lets get started...

Dish for 2

Idly already made - 8
Idly Podi ( Molagai Podi) - 2-3 tbsp ( Depends on spice level)
Onion finely chopped - 1
Salt - To taste - Idly will already have some salt. So make sure you add salt to the correct taste.

For Seasoning:

Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard - 1 tsp
Urad Dhal - 1 tsp
Corriander leaves - 3-5 leaves
Hing - 2 dashes
Jeera - 1 tsp
Cilantro - for topping

Heat oil in a pan and once it is hot enough, add mustard. When it starts to split, add urad dhal, corriander, hing and jeera. Add cut onions and sautee it till onions turn translucent. Cut each idly in 4 equal parts and add it to the pan.Add salt (if required)and mix everything well. Add molagai podi or the idly podi. Mix everything well again and keep in in medium heat for 2 mins untill everything is mixes well. Top it with finely chopped cilantro. Delicious modern podi idly is ready in no time.

Good luck and meet you soon!!
