The Idly Story – Left over part

The leftover of yesterday’s Idlies were made into an awesome Idly Upma / Idly Usili. The Idlies in some form seem to rule the breakfast table in my home. 😉

After drooling on Idly + Sambar + Chutney combo yesterday, it’s the turn for you all to drool over this amazingly simple yet delicious Idly Upma. 🙂

Idly Upma

– Refrigerate the left-over Idlies overnight. It helps in crumbling them better.

– Crumble the idlies well.

– Put oil in a pan, tadka with mustard, broken urid dhal, green chillies and curry leaves.

– Add one onion, finely cut. Put in a pinch of haldi (turmeric powder).

– Fry well.

– Add the crumbled idlies and mix well.

– I usually reduce the green chillies and add our favorite Idly Milagai Podi, for more flavor.

– Squeeze half a lemon and garnish with coriander leaves.

There you go, the easy recipe to a delicious breakfast. 🙂

Now, now, drool some more…

Droolworthy picture, na ???

So, do you do this at home ????

    1. OOH…the deep fried idlies absorb more oil, like frying the bread. They call it Kheema idly here in Tamil nadu. 🙂

      Its always idli upma for us. 🙂 Some days, we make idlies to specifically make this upma. 🙂 Its such a fav.
