      Tips to make Idli Chaat:
      You can prepare the Idli Chaat Restaurant style at home easily. Few tips on How to make Idli Chaat at home: Use idlis which have completely cooled or are leftover. Hot idlis will break easily while toasting. The chaat is made with small pieces, so cut the idli in bite-size pieces. Use fresh and well-whisked curd for a flavourful taste. Sour curd will spoil the taste. Soak the tamarind before making the chutney. Ensure the tamarind pulp has no seeds. Cool the crisped idlis before adding them to curd. Hot idli will spoil the curd. Make the chutney on medium-low flame. The hot flame will burn the tamarind and jaggery. Cool the tamarind chutney, before adding it to the chaat. Learn the recipe from the Idli Chaat Video and make this delicious dish at home.
