    It can also made like a chat. just spread some curd(sugar and salt mixed) on the idlis, then spread soya sauce, tomato sauce, cilly sauce, finely chopped onions, chat masala. At last garnish with finely chopped corriander leaves abd some bhujia over it.


    potato should be applied on both sided or on one side only. plz make it clear
