I mostly shallow fry the idlis and even tried baking the idli.  It came crispier in shallow frying and baking too. I always consume them hot. If you are going to keep them for long time before serving, I suggest you to deep fry the idli.

Notes

I always use leftover idli to make this. If you are using fresh idli make sure to refrigerate for sometime so pieces come neat.

This is mild spicy and if you want more spicy you can increase red chilli powder or green chillies.

We always have it immediately. If you want to keep for long time you can deep fry the idli for more crispiness.
