Idli Umpa Ingredients:

  • Idlies – 4
  • Oil – 2 tsp
  • Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • Urad dal / White Lenthils – 1/4 tsp
  • Curry Leaves – 10 leaves
  • Chopped Ginger – 1 small piece
  • Chopped Green Chillies – 2
  • Turmeric Powder (Haldi) – 2 pinches
  • Salt
  • Chopped Coriander Leaves / Cilantro

Preparation Time : 10-15 min

How to Prepare Idli Upma:

Powder the idlis by squeezing them gently with your hand. Keep it aside.

Heat the oil in a pan, add mustard seeds. When mustard seeds start to splutter, add urad dal, curry leaves and fry for a minute. Then add chopped ginger, green chillies and turmeric powder; mix well. Then add crushed or powdered Idlies with salt and mix well for a minute.

Garnish with coriander leaves.

I usually try this recipe when the idlies do not taste good with chutney. I also prepare this for evening snacks if I have left over idlies from morning. This dish is spicy and tastes great.
