20 SCHEZWAN IDLI

Schezwan Idli


An other interesting recipe using leftover idlis in Chinese style. Can be had as a meal or snack. This is a slight variation of Idli Manchurian recipe. The addition of schezwan sauce added so much taste and with the all the veggies is very filling.

Idlis - 8 - 10
Onion - small sliced
Capscium - 2 sliced thin
Green Onions - choped 4 tbsp
Cabbage - sliced or grated - 1 cup
Carrot - 1 grated or sliced very thin
Ginger Garlic sauce - 1 tbsp
Chings Schezwan Sauce - 1 - 1 1/2 tbsp
Soya sauce/All purpose sauce or Tomato chilli sauce - 1/2 tbsp
Salt as needed
Oil


Cut each idli into 6 pieces. Shallow fry in oil till golden brown and keep aside.( Frying gives a good taste, if not can just toast on tawa or spray some oil in a aluminium foil and broil it for few minutes in the oven).


Heat 3 tsp of oil( can use sesame seeds oil or olive oil) and add onions and saute for 3 - 4 minutes and add ginger garlic paste and fry for a minute till raw smell leaves. Next add chopped capsicum and saute for 3- 4 minutes and add chopped cabbage and carrot. Fry everything till they are cooked but yet firm and not mushy. Finally add chopped green onions and saute once and then followed by the sauces preferred. Mix well and add salt and the fried idlis. Mix well and serve.

In case you don't have store bought schezwan sauce, then can try making some at home by grinding few red chillies, salt, garlic cloves and vinegar to a fine paste.
