Idli Sandwich

An idli sandwich is very easy to make. I usually make this dish from leftover idli from a prior meal or sometimes I'll just make extra idli for it. It is one of my favorite snacks to munch on the next day. Essentially, I use idli as a substitute for bread. The rest of the procedure is the same as your normal bread sandwich. It is a unique way to transform idli into a sandwich - a funky food for fussy kids. Try this recipe to surprise your family. You won't regret it and they will gobble it up!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4

  • Leftover idli (with 8 idli, you may make 16 slices)
  • Green Coriander Chutney
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and sliced
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced 
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • Sandwich masala
  • Ketchup
  • Oil (to shallow fry idli)
  1. Heat the oil in a pan and cut all the idlis in the middle, through from the sides, to slice into two parts.
  2. Shallow fry the idlis until they are medium golden brown on both sides. Repeat for all of them. May be done simultaneously depending on the size of your pan.
  3. Apply green chutney to one side of all the idlis. Then, place cucumber slices, tomato slices and onion slices over half the idlis. Sprinkle some sandwich masala on top.
  4. Cover them with remaining of the slices of idlis and slice into triangles.
  5. Serve hot with green chutney and ketchup.
If you have round molds, you can just follow the same procedures.
