Capsicum - 1 tbsp, finely chopped (use any color)
Red chilli powder - 1/4 tsp
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Coriander leaves - fistful, finely chopped
Oil - 2 or 3 tsp
Curry leaves - few
Salt a pinch
(You can also use vegetables like carrot, cooked peas etc optionally)

  • Heat oil in a pan and add the curry leaves, garlic and green chillies. Saute for few mins. Then add the chopped onions and saute until they turn transparent. Now add the chopped tomatoes, red chilli powder, garam masala powder and required salt.
  • Saute until the tomatoes turn mushy. Now add the finely chopped coriander leaves and the cubed idlis. Mix well and turn off the flame. Keep covered for couple of minutes so that the flavors blend well. Serve warm with plain curd or with ketchup.
