Idly upma is yet another delicious and simple dish that can be made in minutes. There had been times when we make extra idly just to make this delicious idly upma for the next meal.

Preparation time – 5 mins

Cooking time – 5 mins

Serves  – 4

Idly – 8
Onion – 1
Green Chilli – 2

Take the idly and crumble them with your fingers and keep it aside. 


In a Kadai keep some oil, once it is hot add in the mustard seeds, when they splutter add the curry leaves and split urad dhal and fry them until the urad dhal changes colour to golden brown.
