IDLI UPMA | Idli Upma Recipe with left over Idlis

Print Friendly and PDF
 
Idli and Dosa are very common breakfast items in many south Indian house holds. Most of the times we prepare idli, we end up having some extra ones and one can be creative with what to do with these extra idlis. Some dishes one can prepare include Masala Idli fries, Seeyali,Masala Cocktail Idlis, Milagai Podi Idlis,Fried Idli,Chily Idli, Idli Manchurian and this simple Idli upma.
We usually know how many idlis to prepare for a breakfast so technically, chances of having left overs are less but in order to plan for an evening snack , i usually prepare a few extra ones. Infact I like these snacks more than the standard plain Idlis by itself. I think this idli upma is the easiest of all these snacks as it hardly takes any time to prepare.If you have'nt tried it before do give it a try - am sure you would want to make it again.
Idli Upma Recipe:
(serves 2)

Ingredients:
5-6 big sized Idlis,leftover/fresh
2 Onions,roughly chopped
1 tbsp Coriander leaves,chopped
4-5 Green Chillies,slit
1 tbsp Chana dal
1 tsp Urad dal
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
Salt to taste
2-3 tbsp Oil

Method:
  • Crumble the Idlis to get a coarse rava type of powder and keep them ready.
  • Heat oil in a kadai and crackle mustard seeds.
  • Add chana dal and urad dal and fry them.
  • Add slit green chillies and fry them well.
  • Add chopped onions and curry leaves and fry them until they turn pink.
  • Add turmeric powder,salt and crumbled Idlis and mix well.
  • Garnish with coriander.
Serve it hot as it is or with some sev on top.
Notes:
  1. You can add a bit of lemon juice at the end if you want.
  2. Green chillies can be replaced by garlic chili powder or curd chillies or red chillies in the recipe for a different flavor.
  3. You can even cut the idlis into fine pieces instead of crumbling them and follow the same recipe.
  4. You can sprinkle few spoons of water if you feel the idlis are dried when you crumble them.
  5. You can add 2-3 tbsp grated fresh coconut at the end.It adds nice taste too.
