Grilled Potato Idli

Grilled Potato Idli

Potatoes and Idlies both enjoy an equal amount of fanfare. So what happens when they come together to star in a dish? A sure shot formula for a box-office success, guaranteed! In this recipe, I have used leftover idlies and revamped them by combining with mashed potatoes. Finely chopped onions (pyaaz) are sautéed in a small amount of oil, along with some aromatic spices. Curry leaves (curry patta) give the dish a wonderful aroma, while turmeric powder (haldi) gives it a brilliant yellow colour. All these spices can be added according to taste. The mashed potatoes (aloo) are added into this mixture with a hint of lemon juice (nimboo ka ras) and chopped coriander leaves (dhaniya), which enhances its freshness. This mixture is then rolled into small round balls. Assembling this dish is the most exciting part. The idlies are kept on a greased baking tray, and topped with some green (coriander chutney). The potato balls are then placed on top of this, followed by a coat of tomato ketchup. These two sauces give the dish a vibrant flavour and bring in the best of both worlds. The oven is pre-heated to the correct temperature beforehand, and the potato idlies are allowed to cook in it for the required time. So the next time you plan on spicing up an idly dish, don’t forget to invite potato along for the ride.
