Idlis - 10nos (It can be homemade or ready to eat)
I have used mini idlis which I made for my son and was leftover.
Thick Yogurt(Thair/Curds) - 1 cup

For tempering/seasoning
Cooking oil - 2 tspns
Mustard - 1/4 tspn

Preparation Method
Cut Idlis in 2 (mini idlis) or 6 (normal idlis) as desired.
In a kadai, put oil mustard wait till it splutters. Then add asafotida and dals. Wait till its brown. Now add jeera, curry leaves and green chilli. Saute for a minute.
Slowly add yogurt and keep stirring. After a minute add chopped idlis and salt mix well. Remove from the stove.
