spicy tava idli | restaurant style tava idli | tawa idli recipe | spicy tava idli made with left over idlis | with 20 amazing images.

spicy tava idli is a popular restaurant style tava idli. Simple to make spicy tava idli with leftover idlis cooked on a tawa with Indian spices, vegetables and some butter. We have used onions and tomatoes but you can put capsicums or any vegetable you like.

We love to have spicy tava idli made with left over idlis with some coconut chutney to offset the spices from the idli.

Notes on and tips on tava idli recipe. 1. Butter gives a really nice flavor to the spicy tava idlis so make sure you use butter. 2. Add 2 tbsp of water so that it’s not very dry and salt to season. Water will prevent the masalas from sticking to the pan. 3. Spicy tava idli is similar to masala pav, just that we replace bread cubes with idli cubes. 4. The best results are achievable using cold idlis so, if you have idlis left from breakfast or dinner then you can transform them into tongue-tickling spicy tava idli.

The master stroke in this spicy tava idli is the use of pav bhaji masala which gives it a chaat like taste.

Serve spicy tava idli immediately.

This is a fab variation to regular idli. The masala is so good that you don't need any chutney with this.
