Have you ever tried this not yet then must give this a try….This tastes and looks like paneer manchuri…. no one can say that its made from idlis….
      You can make this for evening snacks, when kids return from school or you can prepare this when guests are around or during parties…..a filling delicious recipe will be ready in a jiff……
      Prepare idlis in the moring for breakfast and make manchuris in the evening, I am sure that kids will demand idlis very often..
         Now a days kids are so fussy about eating that it becomes difficult for us…so we end up thinking what to prepare for breakfast but now you can tell your kids to have idlis in morning and their favorite manchuri will be ready in the evening when they are back from school….
    Bache bhi kush Maa bhi kush…
