This unique Stuffed Potato Idli is incomparable to any snack you have ever tasted before – a totally out-of-the-world savoury experience!


Each cup in the idli plate is first lined with a layer of semi-spicy potato bhaji, which is topped with idli batter, and then steamed. This causes the bhaji and the idli to fuse, resulting in a super tasty Stuffed Potato Idli.


The bhaji is made of mashed potatoes perked up with a traditional tempering and common flavouring ingredients like coriander and lemon juice. The peppy flavour of the bhaji, is therefore a perfect match for the idli layer, which itself is extremely soft due to the addition of a little fruit salt to the batter.


You could look at this as a totally unique version of more common snacks like aloo bun. This can be served for Breakfast or as a late evening snack too.
