After watching the video, it looks like the vendor prepared a fusion of North Indian and South Indian cuisines. We all know that idli is one of the most loved dishes to try in South Indian cuisine. On the other hand, he made it in a keema style and this is quite famous in North Indian states. This is a blend of cuisines from two different parts of India.

To make the dish, he started by placing a few idli on the pan and added lots of butter to them. The vendor tossed both sides of the idlis in butter and some spices. Then, he added onions, tomatoes, coriander leaves, more spices, some bhaji, and more butter, and then placed a small plate on top of the veggies. He then minced everything well with a masher. Next, he cut the idlis into pieces and mixed them with the butter-rich vegetables. He served it with chutneys and sambar.
