In this video we will see how to make chilli idli recipe in Tamil. Chilli Idlis are enjoyed by kids and they are also an excellent evening snack. Chilli Idli is an Indo-Chinese recipe that captures the fusion of two cuisines. The idlis are cut into small quarters and fried till they are crispy on the surface. I found that the idlies can also be baked in the oven to achieve similar crispiness. This will also minimize the oil used in this recipe. Next prepare the onion and capsicum mixture and coat the fried idlis. Since the idlis are already cooked we don’t have to leave them in the spicy mixture for too long. So turn of the heat in 2 minutes. If left for too long then the fried idlis would loose their crispiness.
