Mini Oats Idli Fry

Usually if i have leftover idli batter, i'll make them either as uthappams or else i'll make idlis and turn them as upma, for a change i tried adding coarsely grounded rolled oats to some leftover idli batter and prepared this cute looking mini idli fry yesterday for our dinner which i simply spiced up with sambar powder and garam masala powder along with onions and simple tempering..This simple idli fry was quite addictive, they turned out  super delicious and everyone at home just loved it,especially my younger son enjoyed a lot coz he started loving these mini idlis since ever he discovered this cuties in a famous Pondicherry restaurant while we were in India..Now i can feed him with anything as anything with these mini idlis..


2cups Leftover Idli Batter
1/2cup Rolled oats (grounded coarsely)
Water (if needed)
1cup Onions (chopped lengthwise)
1tsp Sambar powder
1/2tsp Garam masala powder
1tsp Mustard seeds+urad dal
Few curry leaves
Oil
Salt

Mix the grounded rolled oats to the idli batter, add water if needed and keep aside for few minutes..grease the mini idly plates with oil and pour enough idly-oats batter and steam cook for about 10minutes in idli cooker, once done remove carefully with a spoon and keep aside..

Heat enough oil,let splutters the mustard seeds,urad dal and curry leaves, add the onions and saute until they turns transculent, now add the idli,sambar powder,garam masala powder and salt, cook everything in simmer until the idlis gets well coated with the spice powder..

Serve hot!
