Idli Chaat Recipe Video. South meets North in this amazing fusion dish! Idli, the most common South Indian snack meets chaat, the most popular class of North Indian snacks, in this off-beat recipe. We have deep-fried Idli cubes, laced them with curds and chutneys, and topped them with yummy garnishes like sev and coriander. A sprinkling of spice powders boosts the aroma and taste of the Idli Chaat further, making it a unique and memorable treat. This nice and chatpata snack is a wonderful way to make use of leftover idlis. You can surprise your kids with this when they come home from school, enjoy it as a tea-time snack or even serve it to guests. You can also try other idli-based recipes like Idli Upma or Idli Milagai Podi.
