Leftover Idli Stir Fried

It is very difficult to throw away leftovers especially when you know the worth of food, so to avoid wasting f I usually prepare very small portion every time I cook. But when it comes to my favourite Idli, I don't mind storing it in fridge for up to two days. Now coming back to today's recipe, I have learnt this from my mom but made some changes by adding sausages to it, mom only add eggs during non-vege days. This is my husband's favourite especially if he wants to eat something simple and quick.

Now let us see how to prepare this quick and yummy dish;


4 Idlis (cut into small pieces)
2 large eggs beaten
3 sausages (sliced)
1 large onion sliced
2 tbsp of dried shrimp
2 tsp od meat curry powder
3pcs bird eye chilli (sliced)
Salt to taste
2 tbsp of oil

In a pan, heat oil and fry onion then add dried shrimp and sausage fry. Pour the beaten eggs on one side and scramble it not fully cooked, now add chilli stir for a minute then add the idlis. Mix everything evenly then you can add meat curry powder and salt, mix thoroughly so that the salt can be absorbed into idli pieces. Now our Idli Stir Fry is ready to be served. Do try and let me know how was it!
