Idli Bites-Super soft and spongy idlis coated in spicy and tasty masala and tempered with mustard and curry leaves coated with few spices and it really tastes yum.
Here in the United States, no one discards leftover food so I always do make something new recipe with my leftover food and even my husband told me I can develop a new recipe with any leftover food either its a snack or desserts.
Normally in South India, they use chutney podi and leftover idlis to make the podi idli or masala coated idlis but tweak the recipe and use the simple basic spices, onion slices and just little bit red chilli powder and tomato chilli ketchup for some tanginess and trust me it really taste yummy.
