well to be honest, i never prepare this idli with the intention of preparing stuffed idli. i only end up preparing this recipe when i some leftover aloo masala or some idli batter and the demand is to make something innovative. i generally never get bored with idli but after preparing it for 2-3 days in a row, i seek some change to the idli recipe. as matter of fact, the potato-based filling is an ideal choice, but you may stuff any leftover dry sabzi like gobi, lauki, kaddu or even bean stir fry. in addition, the craving for a side dish depends upon the spice level of the stuffing. spicier the stuffing less demand for the side dish for this idli. you may add additional podi powder topping on top of these idlis to make them more colourful and flavoured.

aloo masala stuffed rava idlifurthermore some more additional tips, suggestions and variations to the stuffed idli recipe. firstly, there is no strict requirement for the rava or sooji based idli batter for this recipe. any type of idli batter which yields simple idli’s can be used for this recipe. i choose rava idli because you may use it to make an instant idli recipe. secondly, i have used idli stand to prepare these disc-shaped idlis and you may have to be careful while placing the aloo stuffing on top of the first idli batter layer. try to add minimum quantity in the first batch so that it does not spill. lastly, as an alternative to idli stand, you may use steel cups or steel glass. this would make it easier to stuff the masala between the idli batter.
