Idly is one of the most popular breakfast item of South India. I made this masala idly with left over idly’s.I used small or mini idly for this masala idly. We can make this masla idly  with big size idly’s also. Cut the idly’s in to pieces and use it. Very easy break fast for all and idle for  lunch box also.  Let us see how to make this simple easy yummy idly.

Preparation time approx 12 to 15 minutes.
