Idli Chaat

Idli chaat is an interesting combination of South Indian idlis and North Indian  chaat.

Idli Chaat is an excellent snack made with leftover idlis. After having idlis for breakfast, I had a few left. Coincidentally, I also had green chutney and tamarind (sweet) chutney in the refrigerator. So, these leftover idlis got made into a delicious chaat for the evening snack. It tastes as delicious as any other chaat. Here goes the recipe for Idli chaat:


Written recipe is as follows:


5 to 6 leftover Idlis
½ cup curds (dahi)
1 tsp powdered sugar (pisi hui cheeni)
a pinch of salt (namak)
