Masala Idli/ Idli Tadka


Masala idli preparation is an easy breakfast recipe. This is usually made with leftover recipes, but we like it so much that we also prepare the dish with fresh idlis as well. This is very simple to cook and everybody loves to have it. It is simple yet delicious.


  1. Firstly, cut the cooked idlis in cubes. One idli would yield around 7-8 small cubes.
