1. Idli’s

2. Carrot – sliced in julians

3. Bell Pepper (red / yellow / green ) – sliced .

4. Tomatoes

5. Onions – sliced

6. Green & Red chillies – split and sliced

7. Curry leaves

8. Coriander and Lemon for garnishing

Method :

All oil to pan . Once heated put in a few mustard seeds to crackle. Add onions and chillies and saute for half a minute. Add in rest of the vegetable. Add salt as per your taste, red chilli powder and lid the pan to cook for 2-3 mins. Add the idli’s (cut them in 4-6 piece each) and gently mix it all. Let it saute for about a minute or two. Garnish with coriander leaves and squeeze half a lemon in it.

Your dish is ready to eat. Wollaahh !!!
