Dahi Idli Chaat

There are times when we get bored of eating Idlis the traditional way, with Sambar/Chutney etc, right? For such times, here is a delightful way to serve and enjoy the idlis. If you are a chaat lover, then go for it!!

The idlis can be deep fried, shallow fried to crisp them up but I chose to leave them as is. Also grated carrots can be added to make it more colorful. So enjoy the chaat as per your preference.

Check it out for Day 3 Week 4 of BM #48...

Dahi Idli Chaat

Recipe adapted from here

Idlis, bite sized about 18-20

Sev and Boondi as needed

Dahi Idli Chaat

Method Of Preparation -

If not using button idlis, slice the idlis into bite size pieces.
Mix in the Coriander-Mint Chuntey so that all the idlis have been evenly smeared with it.

Arrange them in a plate, drizzle the beaten yogurt, spread the onions and tomatoes.

Sprinkle the Spice powders as needed.

Drizzle the Tamarind-Date Chutney,[more of the coriander-mint chutney if needed), garnish with boondi, sev and coriander leaves.
