Idli Upma



It has been so long that I have blogged anything, many things happening at the same time. We ad a water pipe burst for the 6th time in the apartment. Finally we decided to move out and by gods grace we found a lovely house and could also move in within 3 weeks. Its a great feeling to be in your own house and yet so much to do its never ending.

These busy days are when I love that we have some left overs. This is a recipe where you just follow your instincts, I don't have measurements for the masalas, its all upto everyones taste. Sometimes I just add Idli Pudi / chutney powder and other times I make it this way. If you like you can even deep fry the idlies, I sometimes bake them too.

Idli Upma

  1. Cut the cooked left over Idlies into quarters.
  2. Mix some coriander powder, red chili powder, turmeric powder, cumin powder, amchur (mango powder), sugar and salt. Make this mix to your taste.
  3. Heat 1 tsp oil in a pan. Add 1 tsp mustard seeds.
  4. Add curry leaves once they splutter.
  5. Add the masala mix made in step 2.
  6. Add the idlies.
  7. Mix well and cook for 5 minutes, till everything is heated well.
  8. I cooked it on medium high, mixing intermediately, to make the idlies little crisp.
  9. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve with coconut chutney.
