Idli Upma

                                                             Left over Idlis can disappear in a few seconds when made in to this Idli Upma!!Lot of people prefer Idli Upma to normal Idlis. It does not require any chutney or accompaniment to go with.The crunchy Dal and the spicy chilli in the Upma make it really tasty.
When I have leftover idlis from breakfast I refrigerate it until next morning.It really becomes hard and easy to crumble in the mixer.If you are making Upma in the evening, with the morning idlis crumble it with your hands.
It becomes really soft when sauteed with the spices and onions.You can even sprinkle some idli chilli powder as an option.




You will Need
  • 3-4 leftover hard Idlis
  • One chopped Onion
  • One to two Green Chillies
  • One tbs Oil
  • One tsp Mustard Seeds
  • One tsp Urad Dal
  • Few Curry Leaves
  • Few Chopped Coriander leaves
How To
  • Crumble the idlis either with your hand or in the mixer.


  • Heat oil in a pan crackle mustard seeds, throw in some Urad Dal and fry till brown.Add chopped onions,green chilli and curry leaves.Add salt and fry till the onions are translucent.
  • Add crumbled idlis.Mix well and serve hot.
