whenever, i prepare idli’s for breakfast i prepare extra idli’s for evening snacks. i usually prepare idli upma or masala idli from these idlis. however today, my husband asked me to prepare the idli manchurian, similarly like gobi manchurian. even i wanted to taste some indian street food and hence i decided to prepare this yummy manchurian recipe. i used corn and plain flour coating for these idlis. however, if you do not like, you can deep fry the idlis without the coating.
