Idli Manchurian | Idly Manchurian

Idli Manchurian
Idli Manchurian is one of a Indo-chinese appetizer. Idli is a authentic South Indian Breakfast recipe. Sometimes there will be left over Idli and I prepare either Idli upma or Kaima Idli. This time I prepared Idli manchurian with left over Idli's. The preparation is very similar to Gobi Manchurian. This can be served as a evening snacks or along with fried rice, pulao or biryani.

Tips:
Adjust green chillies to your taste.
Don't over crowd idli while deep frying.
For best results, cook the sauce in sesame oil.
To check the hotness of oil for deep fry, drop a small batter.If it bubbles up, then the oil is hot.
