Simple Chilli Idli

It was one of those morning when I hit the snooze button too many times and there was no time to make tiffin for my daughter to take to school. I has planned on mini idlies and tomato chutney. There was time for mini idlies but no time for Tomato chutney. I had read in aval vikatan about pepper idlies, Of course i kept that recipe book let safely, so safely that i can't find it myself..... anyway that is how chilli idly was born. I am sure many other women have had this idea before me and maybe even posted about it, here's my take:
Simple Chilli Idli

Mini idlies - around two to three cups
Oil  - 1 tbsp or more
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp to 1 tsp as per heat tolerance.
Asafoetida (hing pdr) - two shakes from the dabba
Curry leaves - 1 sprig.

Heat oil in a fry pan, add mustard, let it pop, bruise curry leaves with your finger, add to the oil, Keep heat on sim. Add asafoetida, salt, turmeric and lastly add chilli powder. You will get a nice smell .Swirl around this flavoured oil in the pan and drop in the idlies. toss well to coat all idlies and serve.

You can do the same with whole idlies cut into pieces, or leftover idlies also. Instead of chilli powder you can add pepper powder or a mixture of both. My dd dosen't like pepper so I added chilli pdr.
