Masala Idli Fry (With leftover Idli)

While planning to make Idli or Dosa,the part I feel lazy is soaking the rice and dal and then the grinding process.But once that part is over I feel so happy that I don't have to break my head thinking what to make for breakfast for the next two days or for one day's breakfast and dinner hehe..
So that means I have the ready batter to make twice.Most of them here including my relatives buy the 'ready made mix' from the supermarkets and tell me they don't waste time on all those grinding process but somehow I don't like the idea and doubt would it be healthy? May be once in a while it is OK.Anyways they have their own reasons,and if asked healthy­čśľ then they would ask in return... ''Is such thing healthy,is this-that healthy'' etc...
I usually don't have leftovers for Idli because I know how much my family intake is and  keep my leftover batter in the refrigerator.But sometimes we go wrong and that 's what happened few days back.First I thought of steaming or microwaving the leftover and using it but then I turned it into this Masala Idli and it was whipped off :)
Left over Idli  5 cut into cubes
Oil  3 Tbsp + 1 tsp
Mustard seeds 1/4 tsp
Garlic 2 cloves finely chopped
Onion  1 finely chopped
Tomato 1     ''        ''
Salt 1/4 tsp
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Chilly Powder  1/2 tsp
Water 1/4 cup
Curry leaves    a few
Coriander leaves   1/4 cup finely chopped
Method Of Preparation
-Heat 3 tbsp of oil in a pan and slightly fry the cubed Idlis. Remove and keep aside.
-Now in the same pan add 1 tsp of oil(if needed) and splutter the mustard seeds.
-Add the chopped onion,curry leaves and garlic.
-When the onion turns transparent add the finely chopped tomatoes.
-Now add the turmeric powder,chilly powder and salt.Saute well till the tomatoes are mushy and then add water.Mix well.
-Now add in the fried Idlies and mix well,till the masala coats the idli pieces.Garnish with Coriander leaves and serve.
