We often convert leftover Idlis into Idli Upma/ Chilli Idli..And now try this method for a yummy crispy snack which I am sure would be liked by all. All you need to do is cut Idlis into cubes and deep fry in oil till golden brown. If you want it spicy, you may marinate the idli pieces in chilli powder, pepper powder and lil salt and deep fry. The yummy snack is ready in minutes. Serve hot with Tomato Ketchup!!
