This is a healthy evening snack or breakfast idea. I usually use the left over idli to make this dish.
Cut Idli into bite sized pieces and keep aside.
Chop the onions into small pieces. Chop Green chili and cut the red chili into halves.
Heat oil in a pan. Add the mustard seeds. Once the mustard splutters, add dal (for crunch) if desired. Saute until dal becomes light brown color.
Add the onion, green chili, curry leaves and red chili and grated coconut. Add turmeric and salt to taste.
Stir until the onions are slightly brown. Add the idli pieces and mix thoroughly. (if the idli is hard sprinkle water and close the pan with a lid for 3-4 minutes)
Take the pan off heat. Sprinkle a pinch of garam masala and chaat masala if desired.
Serve hot. This dish does not require chutney or sambhar.
