Fried Idli with a twist


Fried idli as the name depicts itself, a mouth watering food 😉 As we shared our last post regarding fried Idli, it is the same but with a twist.

Instead of Sambhar masala and a South Indian touch I thought to cook it with Maggi Masala 😀 and yeah it tastes yum with it.

As Maggi Bhuna Masala is available at every shop so you can buy it and experiment with it and let your taste buds say Yum 😛
