Idli Manchurian

When we prepared suji’s idli which is very healthy and low cal. Food, it’s my favourite and never says No to this. We can make so many new recipes or tasty snacks with leftover idli’s i.e. masala idli, fried idli, idli sandwich, so many variations. Here is one which I’m trying today which called “Idli Manchurian”.

Semolina is simply a form of ground hard wheat called durum wheat.  It is often used to make pastas and to thicken stews.  Semolina is very high in protein making it an ideal substitute to flour, especially for vegetarians.  Semolina is said to have a low glycaemic index, meaning that it is digested and absorbed at a slower rate in the stomach and intestines than white flour.  This characteristic is of a particular importance for those wanting to reduce their weight as well as for diabetics striving towards better blood sugar control.  Slower digestion and absorption helps to prevent rapid fluctuations in blood glucose levels. (From Dasman org)

1 onion chopped
1 green capsicum chopped
1 carrot medium sized (chopped)
2 green chillies chopped
1 tsp. ginger paste
2 tsp. tomato ketchup
1 tsp. soya sauce
1 tsp. corn flour
1 tbsp. olive oil
Salt to taste
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tbsp. green coriander chopped
1 tsp. sesame seeds
Vegetable oil for deep frying

First, we have to cut the idli into finger size. I get 4-5 fingers from one idli, but it would be depend on the size of idli.
Now you have to heat the vegetable oil into the deep pan and fried this chopped idli’s on medium flame until cook crisp and golden. Now remove this fried idli onto kitchen towel.
Second step for Manchurian,
Heat the pan on medium flame and add olive cook.
Add chopped onion, green chillies and ginger paste, sauté for 5 minutes until onion becomes transparent and cook well.
Add chopped capsicum and carrot. Cook for 10 minutes.
Now add spices (black pepper, salt and sugar), sauces batter and corn flour batter.
For sauces and cornflour batter
Take half cup of water and mix both sauce into cup.
Take half cup of water and corn flour and mix well
Cook the Manchurian until dried and garnish with green coriander and sesame seeds and serve hot.
