The Chinese were mad ar us for taking their cuisine and Chinjabi - fying it - so they took our sacred idli and gave it a Chinese twist - The results were absolutely superb , so we can forgive them this one time I think.
I took the contents of an idli packet , split it into two , added red color in one lot and yellow in the other .Steamed idlis as per packet instructions
While idlis were steaming I made a Sweet & Sour Sauce which is delicious :
( Recipe BBC GoodFood )
2 oz/ 50g Brown Sugar
2 oz/ 50g Malt Vinegar
6 oz / 150g Tomato Sauce or Ketchup
1 small tin pineapple chunks in juice
1 tbsp light soy
2 sliced spring onions (optional)
Combine all the ingredients except for spring onions , simmer for 5 minutes and garnish with spring onions - comes out delicious.
Now to assemble Chinidli:
1/2 Capsicum Cut 1"
1/2 Red Bell Pepper Cut 1"
1 Large Onion - Cut 1"
1 Large Tomato - Scooped , Cut 1"
To Assemble
Lightly stir fry all vegetables in the wok , spoon on sweet and sour sauce to taste , now add the ChinIdlis stir fry a minute or so , pull out your chopsticks and sit to a delicious Chinese Idli Thaali !
