Fried masala idli is one of my favorite variation which you can made either with fresh idlis or leftover idlis. There are times many times when we have leftover idlis and it’s a better way to use them to make masala idli. Its takes hardly 15 minutes to prepare, you can serve as breakfast meal or evening snack and garnish with coriander and lemon juice.
