Recipe of Idli upma

Ingredient Name Quantity Unit
Onion (chopped) 1 Numbers
Curry Leaves 1 Stricks
Green/red Chilles 1-2 Numbers
Peanut (optional) 1 Tablespoons
Urad Dal 1 Tablespoons
Channa Dal 1 Tablespoons
Cumin 1 Teaspoons
Mustard Seeds 1 Teaspoons
Turmeric Pinch
Idli 4-6 Numbers
Coriander Leaves
Oil 1-2 Tablespoons
Salt To Taste


1. Smash the idli well (like you smash the potatoes). 2. Add oil in a heavy pan ,add mustard seeds,cumin and add channadal, Urad dal, peanuts and saute till they are cooked and then add Green/red chillies, curry leaves, chopped onion, turmeric. 3. Once onion is cooked (the onion should not loose its crispiness), add smashed Idli and salt and mix well. 4. Put some fresh cut coriander. 5. Serve hot with chutney or pickle. I love to eat it without any side dish.


I saw your "Basic Upma" receipe and thought let you remind of this upma too. This is famous in tamilnadu. People do Idli in the morning and do idli upma with the remaining idlis in the evening.
