Idli Upma

Have some left over idlis? Then here's how you can turn them into another quick breakfast dish.

4-5 idlis
3-5 shallots sliced thin
1 green chilli chopped
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp urid dal
few curry leaves
1 tsp chopped coriander leaves
2 Tbsp oil
salt to taste


  • Chop or crumble the idlis into small pieces and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds
  • Once they begin to crackle add the urid dal and curry leaves.
  • Mix well and add the sliced shallots, green chilli and salt(add less salt as the idlis already have salt in them).
  • Fry until the shallots turn golden brown. 
  • Now tip in the chopped idilis to the fried onions and mix well.
  • Fry for 2-3 minutes until the idli pieces are well coated with the onion mixture.
  • Garnish with some finely chopped coriander leaves and serve hot.


We would be glad to hear your feedback:)
