Idli Upma with Leftover Idlis | Breakfast Specials!

Idli Upma is very delicious and quick breakfast recipe. You can make it with fresh idlis or leftover idlis or even sometimes when the batter is not fermented fully you end up hard idlis. If you make this Upma no one will know your idlis were hard:-)

Do checkout my other Idli varieties here.

Idlis - 10 nos (I have used previous night leftovers)
Onion - 1 no(big)
Tomato - 1/2 no
Curry leaves - few
Sambar powder - 1/2 tspn(As per your taste)
Red Chilli powder - 1/2 tspn (As per your taste)
Turmeric - 1/2 tspn
Ginger garlic (optional) I have not used.
Coriander leaves - 2 tablspns for garnish

Nalla Yennai/Gingely Oil - 2 to 3 tblspns
Mustard - 1/2 tspn
Urad dal - 1/2 tspn

Preparation Method
Chop onions and tomatoes finely.
Heat a kadai, add oil, mustard and wait till it pops out. Then add urad dal and saute till brown.
Add onion, curry leaves and a pinch of salt. saute till raw smell goes.
Add tomato and saute till its soft. Add all masala powders above.
Take each idli and mash it with hands and add it.
Sprinkle salt and close for 10 mins until the masala is coated. Mix well.
Garnish with chopped coriander leaves. Mix and cook for 5 mins.

Off the stove.

Serve as it is or with pickle or chutney.

This recipe is going to Sowmya's Breakfast event cookcookandcook and thoushaltcook
