The first solid dish that we start for any infants is Idli. Though Idli is very healthy, many of the kids even adults doesn't like to have Idli. So, to make the Idli more appetizing, we can make many varieties and variations and treat out kids and family. One such variety is Spicy Tawa Idli.

Method:
  1. Cut the steam cooked idlis into medium sized cubes. If you are using left over idlis and the idlis are dry, just soak it in warm water for a minute and then squeeze out the water and the idlis will be soft. Heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds and when the cumin seeds starts to sputter, add chopped onions, ginger-garlic paste along with a pinch of salt and saute the onions till they change their color

  2. Then, add chopped tomatoes, green peas and saute the tomatoes till they are mushy and cooked. After the tomatoes are cooked, add finely chopped capsicum, and stir-fry the capsicum just for couple of minutes. Capsicum pieces will be nice if it is crunchy, so don't cover the pan with the lid and also don't stir-fry for more time. 

  3. Also add turmeric powder, red chilli powder, salt and  garam masala and toss everything well. Finally add chopped idlis and mix well. Do not mash the idlis. 

  4. Give a gentle mix and finally garnish with chopped coriander leaves and remove the pan from flame
