This is such a good way to use up leftover idlis. When mixed with minced meat this produces an incredible lamb chaat. To be honest though, I sometimes make idlis just for this dish. It is really easy to throw together at the last minute and tastes amazing. You will first need to make some idlis and can read my recipe here.
When cooking idlis in this way, it is essential that they are cold from the fridge. This way, they won’t stick to the pan as easily.
There are so many possible variations for this recipe. Leave the meat out and you’ve got a fantastic vegetarian chaat. You could also use other meats, pulses and veggies.
I made this for my wife this afternoon and she wondered where it all came from. It only took about ten minutes to whip up. Lamb chaat is going to be a favourite in our house from now on I think.
