Wow that looks really good.
Snigdha's picture this is something, I would have never tried had I not seen your recipe. This is such an innovative idea. Is it your own creation? Am going to try it out soon.

I used to hear that one of the hotels in Mangalore prepared Idli Manchurian. I never tasted that but now I tried to prepare it in my own way.

This dish looks mouthwatering. I have tried fried idlies in indian restaurants and I love them. I have prepared idlies today morning and have about 10 idlies left, I will try this tonight and let you know how it tasted. Thanks.

Nice recipe! To make it more "authentic", one can dip the idli cubes in maida and corn starch mix and fry (Just like Manchurian)first and then make the sauce mentioned above. Then add idli cubes to it. This is the recipe from a very famous restaurant in Nilgiris. I prepare this very often as it is one of the favorites at home.
