Tawa or Tava Idli is a delicious and quick snack – a medley of leftover idlis, some pav bhaji masala and basic spices, onion, tomato, and lemon juice. It takes all of 15 mins to make and tastes great as an evening snack with some tea or coffee.

I am usually lazy to cook for just myself and end up eating dosa for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on days like that. Since I also make idlis in bulk and store them, I rotate idli and dosa through all meals. Needless to say, this gets a bit boring, especially the idlis since I am not a huge fan of them. Dosa I can eat all day every day forever as long as I change up the side dishes. So yeah, what do you do when you get bored of idlis and don’t want to make anything else? You improvise with the idlis you have in hand and that’s exactly what I did.Print
