Baked Idli Snack | Crispy Idli Fry | Healthy Snack

Idli is a common South Indian breakfast or tiffin item that every household makes atleast once a week.They are considered world's healthiest foods as well.They are easy to digest,steam cooked and perfect for all age groups.I make idlis once or twice a week and kids love this breakfast too.But at times,if you have left over idlis from morning breakfast and kids don't wish to have the same in the evening,then go ahead and make some idli upma or make this super tempting snack.Idli upma was a frequent one at home since my childhood, but this one was an interesting snack they loved.The wedges are nicely baked,crispy ones.We love having it with guacamole but you can always have with ketchup too.Above all,this is baked and so uses very less oil and you get a yummy snack ready in minutes !!

Preparation time~5 minutes
Baking time~20 minutes
Serves~ 32 wedges
idlis 8
chilly flakes 1/2-3/4 tsp
cumin powder 1/4 tsp
chaat masala 1/2 tsp
asafoetida /hing/kayam a pinch
salt a pinch
oil(preferably sesame oil) 2tbsp

  • Cut the made idlis in four pieces or wedges(as in pic).Mix the spices,salt and oil in a bowl and add the idli pieces or wedges in the bowl to coat the spice masala.

  • Pre heat oven to 375 degrees F or 190 degrees C and arrange the pieces or wedges as a single layer.
  • Place in oven and bake for 10 minutes on one side or slightly browned.Then flip and turn the other side and bake for another 10 minutes or until crisp on all sides(The browning can be increased as per personal preference.Increase the baking time to another 2 or 3 mins more).
  • Remove on a plate and cool slightly,serve with ketchup or guacamole.

* If you don't have chaat masala,add few drops of  lemon juice works good.
* You can add any of the chutney powders like idli milagu podi or chammanthi podi and make too.
* Add chilly flakes as per tolerance.
* Idli has salt in it so just add a pinch or as per tastes.
* If you don't have an oven,then shallow fry them in non stick pan and enjoy.
