Baked Idli Fry

I have never been a fan of idli. Whenever my mom makes idli, I will crib so much, and she will eventually make Idli Upma and Kunku (Adding onion,chili and coriander to idli batter and frying the idly). Day before yesterday while talking to Amma, she told that she had prepared kunku. After hearing that, I felt like having fried idli. Instead of deep frying, I baked the idlis, and still managed to get a crispy outer layer. This helps in using minimal oil, with no compromise in taste.
