Hello friends… I know all of you wished me good luck for what I was looking for. And Yes that happened. It was regarding a job opportunity. The long awaited one… Fortunately, I got through it and now I am at Portland, Oregon.
I am happy that I am back to my career again. But I am now far away from AJ L Hopefully I ll be back with him very soon…
Now that I ll be a bit busy with my work and so I am not sure how frequent I can visit all your wonderful posts. Also since we do not have much of cooking here, I am not sure how much I can try out your recipes. Fortunately, I have a few posts in my drafts and I shall keep updating my blog during weekends. I ll definitely try my level best to visit each and every post of all my friends too..
Now coming to the post for today – Idly manjurian. This is always a wonderful item with left over idlys. I usually prepare a few more idlys for breakfast and prepare this for the evening tea. We love idlys in this form much more than for breakfast..
Idly -- 6 – 8 nos
Onion -- 1 small / ½ of a medium one
Ginger Garlic Paste -- 1 tsp
Capsicum -- ½ of a medium one
Tomato Sauce -- 2 tsp
Soya sauce -- 1 tsp
Chilly Sauce -- 1 tsp
Coriander leaves -- ½ cup chopped
Oil -- 2 tsp / for deep frying
Salt -- as required
Preparation of Idly Manjurian:
Cut the idly into bite size pieces. Preferably keep the idly in the fridge before preparation. I usually use left over idlys. Deep fry the idly pieces. To avoid too much oil, I did grill it in the oven.
Thinly slice the onions and chop the capsicum into small pieces. Heat oil in a pan and add the chopped onions and ginger garlic paste. Add salt and saute until the onions are translucent. Add the chopped capsicum and let it fry well.
Now add the fried idly pieces. Add the sauces and let the masala and the sauces coat the idly pieces well. Add the chopped coriander leaves and mix well. Turn off fire.
Serve hot with tea or even well suited as a lunch box item.
