Idli Manchurian Recipe - Leftover Idli Recipes
It is no fancy just like other manchurian recipes with few modifications. Now lets get onto learn how to make idli manchurian recipe.
Instructions
  1. If you are making your batch of idlis fresh then refrigerate it atleast for 30mins.Then cut the idlis into small cubes.In a mixing bowl mix all the ingredients under 'for the batter(except oil and idlis)' add little water to form a thick paste.
  2. Dip the idlis cubes into the batter and tawa toast it(or deep fry) . I used my trusted Nirlep tawa, added less oil and toasted till golden brown.Drain in tissue paper.
  3. Get all the ingredients ready for the manchurian.Heat oil in a pan and add garlic,ginger and spring onions white part saute for a minute.Add onion saute until slightly browned.
  4. Then add capsicum, saute for 2mins. Let the onions and capsicum retain its crispiness and do not let them turn brown.Then add soya sauce and mix well in high flame. Now reduce the flame and add tomato sauce and required salt.Add cornflour mixture and little water to make it saucy.
  5. Bring the sauce to a quick boil. Add fried idlis, pepper powder and give a toss for the sauce to coat well. Garnish with spring onions green part, give a quick mix and serve hot.
  6. Serve hot with any fried rice of your choice or just as a starter.Serve immediately before it becomes soggy.
Recipe Notes

Dont skip spring onions as it gives a nice flavour.
Refrigerating idlis helps in giving firm idli cubes with no crumbles.
Soya sauce forms the base for any manchurian.You can even use green chilli sauce / red chilli sauce.
The consistency is purely your choice, you can make it saucy like how I have did or make it dry too.
Always serve hot as it may turn soggy when rested for a while.
Adding cornflour water mixture is purely optional - this is just to make the sauce thick.
Don't add more soya sauce than the mentioned amount else it will change the taste and make the manchurian more darker in color.
After the fried idlis are added just toss it, that's enough.
