Idli upma

Just thought of another entry for Pallavi's Sunday Snacks - Fix It .

We all love this better than the actual idlis.

Ingredients :

Leftover idlis - 4
Onion - 1
Green chillies - 2 or 3
Salt to taste ( Go easy on salt, since idlis have some salt too)
Urad daal, hing, mustard seeds and curryleaves for seasoning
Cilantro for garnishing


Method :

Cut the idlis into small pieces and keep aside.
In a pan, heat 1 spoon of oil. Add mustard seeds and let it pop.
Add hing, curry leaves, green chillies and fry for a minute.
Add urad daal and fry till it is golden brown.
Add chopped onions and saute till it is golden brown.
Add the idli pieces and add little salt and saute till the idlis are little crispy on the outside.
Garnish with cilantro.

Tastes awesome with Maggi tomato and chilli sauce.

Since rice is the main ingredient for idli, i'm sending this for Srivalli's Rice Mela too.

Idli upma is a really cool idea, Vibaas. We used to shallow-fry leftover idlis for a snack the next day, but your way sounds even better.
