  • Bread - 2 slices cut into circles
  • Potatoes – 2 boiled, peeled and mashed
  • Hung Curd – 1 bowl
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil – 2-3 spoons to fry


  • Mix spices of your choice into the mashed potato. I prefer ½ onion, a little salt and very little red chilli powder. Spread the potato mixture on one side of the bread slices.
  • Heat a tava or a non-stick griddle with a spoon of oil. Place the bread slice on it, with the potato mixture face down on the oil.
  • Add a little salt to the hung curd and spread it over the bread slice on the pan. Make sure all the sides are covered with curd.
  • When the bread slice is completely covered with curd, lid the pan, ensuring that the lid does not touch the curd. Keep the flame low.
  • Take the lid off after a minute. By this time, the curd will have settled down uniformly all over the bread slice, indicating that the idli is ready. Use a broad spatula to lift it from the pan to make sure it doesn't break. Serve with tomato sauce.
