Spot idli recipe, Spot idli on tawa

Spot Idli is a delicious, addictive and lip making idli variety prepared instantly on tawa by adding idli batter onto spicy onion tomato mixture and steamed to perfection. As mentioned earlier this Spot Idli/ Instant idli variety uses no Idli stand, which is a bliss as it can be prepared by anyone. .This Hyderabadi famous spot Idli  with crisp exterior and soft fluffy inside calls for some simple ingredients to cook but yields in unbelievably awesome taste and can be served with or without sides. I liked this hyderabadi spot Idli with peanut chutney and coconut chutney as in the images.

For this recipe I used regular Homemade Idli batter and  Homemade butter and cooked it in a way that I understood from the street food videos which turned to be a hit at home. You can skip butter and use oil/ homemade ghee according to your liking. Also make sure to use only finely chopped onion and finely chopped tomato as it gives best texture for the masala and will be easy to consume too. Wanted to try my hands on this delish for almost a year but never happened for some reason. I am super happy on how it resulted and also to share the recipe with you guys. So let’s get to the making of hyderabadi Spot Idli on tawa.

  2. After 3 to 4 minutes when the mixture looks cooked divide the masala mixture into 2/3/4 portions.
  3. My tawa is big so made 4 potions. Now add 2 to 3 ladles of batter to each portion of masala in a way it is completely covered in batter. Remember enough batter will be required to yield idli like texture. Now cover it with a lid. Put the flame to low and cook for 5 minutes in low flame.
  4. After 5 minutes you will notice ¾ th of the idli cooked now flip the idli gently. Cook the other side without lid. When both sides are cooked put off the flame, garnish the idli's with chopped cilantro and serve it hot with chutney or tiffin sambar or relish it just like that!!
