Idli Upma with lemon seasoning

Leftover food has never gotten more interesting since this recipe :) Everyone loves idlis and this simple idli upma is another reason to love them!I had a few leftover idlis and was wondering what to do of them, when I decided to try this.You should try it once, and fall in love with the simplicity of it!Then, what leftovers!

I have lots of ready made lemon rice powder sitting in the kitchen racks, its ok if we do not have fresh lemons but I wouldn't prefer to use the powder.My hubby got lots for his travel trip(he had enough of lemon rice!)I just went and added it to this upma and it was a hit!

You need

Idlis (one day old or atleast 8-9hours) 5

For the seasoning:
Lemon rice powder any brand 2 tsp
Oil 2 tsp
Curry leaves 1 sprig
Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp
Onions 1 small (optional)
Salt to taste
Cilantro chopped to garnish

  • Crumble the idlis with your hands into course bits.
  • Heat oil in a pan, add the onions if you are using them.
  • Into the hot oil add the lemon rice powder and saute it for a bit.
  • Now add the idli bits and stir well.If its too dry sprinkle some water and stir well with salt to taste and garnish with cilantro.

  • Serve hot :)

- if you don't have the ready made powder, check my lemon rice post for the fresh lemon seasoning.
- idlis have to be leftover else they will mash and not crumble.
