Sorry for the long break, had good rest for a good cause. Hope and praying things should be fine,it will. Missed my blog a lot and sorry for all the readers who returned empty with out lasted updates in posts,but all for some good reasons and from now on will try to give some frequent post's.
Coming to the recipe, Idli upma is my all time favorite,the easiest yummy breakfast recipe which can be done in no time.Some like it to be plain, but i like the taste of podi added in it.


Idli - 4
Idli podi - 3/4 tsp
Gingelly oil - 3/4 tsp
Shallots/onion - 4(r)1/2
More Milagai - 5
Turmeric powder - pinch

To Temper:

Oil - 1/2 tsp
Mustard - 1/8 tsp
Urad dal - 1/4 tsp
Curry leaves - few


Mash idli into small pieces add in some idli podi and gingelly oil,mix well

Mix well and set a said for 10 mins

Take a kadai pour in little oil saute salted chilly(More milagai) till golden and set a said 

Use the same kadai add in ingredients under "To Temper" and saute well till slight golden,then add in onion and saute well

Then add in more milagai, pinch of turmeric and saute well

Then add in podi idli mix in well and saute for 2 mins till onions and chilly is coated well


I din't have shallots,so used big onion but i recommend to use shallots it gives an unique taste.

Adding turmeric is purely optional,but don't skip idli podi it gives nice flavor.

Keep Smiling :)
