Idly, Thakkali Gosthu

Iam looking for quick side-dishes for idly, if you want to help me, please suggest me a quick side-dish for idly. I could spare just 10 mins in the morning to prepare a sidee for idli's. if coconut is grated and freezed, then its coconut chutney, and other day is for tomato chutney. Today i prepared this Tomato Gosthu for break-fast. the left over gosthu, was served for lunch, with boiled eggs. such a 2 in 1 dish has to be blogged here isn't it?
