Idly Manchurian - Punjabi Style

Healthy snacks are always in demand and if you make it from leftovers , you have a satisfaction of utilising the food which could have been thrown or stored in fridge till it stales. My family loves south Indian food and I have to make it once a week..Everytime I am left with 6-7 idlis. So, I make this Idli manchurian Punjabi style.Here I am sharing a tasty and filling snack with you all..Its a great tiffin recipe also..


Idlis - 7 pieces cut in pieces
Tomato - 4 cut in pieces
Onion - 2-3 cut in pieces
Green Capsicum - 1 big cut in pieces
Green Chillies - 2 chopped
Garlic paste-  1 small tbs
Mustard seeds - 1 small tbs
Cumin - 1 small tbs
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tbs
Red chilly powder - 1/2 tbs
Coriander Powder - 1 tbs
Garam Masala - 1/2 tbs
Salt to taste


 In a wok, heat 7-8 tbs oil, add mustard seeds, cumin,and when they splutter add green chillies and garlic paste. Saute.

Add onion and capsicum. Saute for 6-7 min and add tomato. Saute again  for 10 min.

Add all masalas as specified. You may also add some sambhar masala at this time. Pour 1 cup of water now. This makes idli pieces to soak the juices of the dish and enhances the flavour.

Now add idli pieces. Mix properly.

Idli manchurian Punjabi style is ready. Serve hot..
Hope you liked it!!!
