This Tasty Puli Idli/Savory Rice Cakes are best way to use the leftover Idlis.

Idli-a staple South Indian breakfast.

Idli are a staple South Indian healthy breakfast.Its a perfect blend of carbohydrates and protein.And it is also steamed which makes it healthy breakfast.It is made with fermented batter of rice and urad dal. Check out to make Idli dosa Batter.The batter is fermented overnight.Due to the fermentation process it is easily digested by the body.

Using Leftovers

Usually Idli are had along with spicy condiments like SambarChutney.But when we have some leftovers,its a challenge to use them interestingly and yummy.There may be various ways to use leftover idlis. But this one is really yummy and tasty.I have seen this recipe in a TV show years back.Most of the recipes I learned are from TV shows. This recipe has nice  tangy flavor because of the tamarind extract we use.You can adjust as per your requirements.
