Pepper Idli

I often try to make different recipes with leftover idli. And this time I wanted to spice it up to a notch. So tried this Pepper Idli. I remember eating this at some restaurant. You can actually even prepare this with fresh Idli's. But let the Idli's cool down a little.

Smallor mini Idli's/ Idli cut into small Cubes : 8-10
Onion :1
Whole Pepper Corn : 1 tbsp
Fennel Seeds : 1 tsp
Oil : 1 tbsp
Garlic : 4-5 cloves
Curry Leaves : 5- 8 leaves
Coriander Leaves : 1 tbsp (Chopped leaves)

Procedure :
1. Dry Roast pepper corns and fennel seeds; once it cools down using a pestle and mortar powder it.
2. On the same tawa heat oil and temper with curry leaves and chopped garlic.
3. Add onions and cook till it turns slightly brown in color. Add salt too.
4. Now add the chopped idli and cook it for 2 minutes.
5. Once the idli's turn a little crispy add the coarse pepper and fennel powder.
6. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
