Idli upma.. a very very simple recipe to make from leftover idlis...a good item to be in the lunch box .. a very easy option to satisfy that evening hunger pang..just 5 minutes and its ready..

There are other versions of this  that upma i make , but i am keeping that for later... :)

using up leftover idlis for  a simple upma


Oil or ghee- 1-2 tbspns
Mustard seeds- 1 tspn
Split white urad dal-1/2tspn
Curry leaves- 6-7
Red chilli flakes - as reqd( or 2-3 dried red chillies)
Idlis-4(cut into small pieces)
Salt- as per taste
Fresh coriander leaves- as reqd

How i made it?

Heat the oil.Put in the mustard seeds and let it splutter.Add in the urad dal and the curry leaves.If you are using dry red chillies ,put that also in.Put in the idli pieces and then add in the chilli flakes.Give a good stir . Add in the salt.When the idlis are fried well , add in the chopped coriander and take off the stove.
Serve with a  hot sup of coffee or tea.
You can make this more spicy but for  a quick snack we at home prefer it this way.
