Idly Upma(Upma with left over Idly)

Hai friends today i am coming with Idly Upma.This upma is prepared with left over idly.In my house we all love this tiffin.Ok lets go to the recipe.


Left over Idly-8
Green chillies-2
Urad dal-1 tsp
Mustard seeds-1/2 tsp
Jeera-1/2 tsp
Dry red chilli pieces-few
Curry leaves few
Salt to taste
Hing little pinch
Oil-1 tsp

First take the idly and make the rawa by pressing make it like crumble.

Now place the pan pour oil and heat it.
When it gets heat add the urad dal and fry until it changes to light brown.

To this add the mustard seeds.
When the mustard seeds starts splutter add the jeera,dry red chillies,green chillies,curry leaves and hing.

Now soon add the 3 tsp of water and very little salt.

When the salt dissolves now add the idly crumbles.

Now mix well and serve hot.

1.I add little water because the salt should dissolve otherwise the upma will be salty in one place.
2.Dont add too salt why because the idly already has little salt.
