As I grow older, I find myself recollecting my childhood more frequently especially the parts that I have long forgotten..I am assuming it is some part of me trying to hold on to my childhood. The weirdest part is that I simply can’t remember what I did yesterday..Anyways, I had this sudden recollection of how every Sunday evening my mom used to roast the idlis that she made that morning in ghee and sprinkle it with sugar. What a treat it was! I always made sure I was around for those even if it meant missing some part of my play time.
I usually make these for breakfast with leftover idlis from the previous day and my kids love it. The best part is it takes less than 5 minutes and your breakfast is ready. Perfect for a lazy Sunday morning breakfast!
Here’s a recipe for soft fluffy idlis.
- 5 idlis
- 1 tablespoon ghee
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- Cut each idly into 3 equal pieces.
- Place a shallow pan on medium heat and add ghee to it. When the ghee melts way, add the cut idlis and let them roast for about 3-4 minutes. [Note: DO NOT try to stir them.The idles may just crumble down]
- Gently flip to the other side and let them roast for another couple of minutes. Take it off heat.
- Serve warm with sprinkled sugar on top.
