Idli upma

This is the recipe which is prepared in most of the south Indian households to finish off the left-over idlies. Once the movie "சூரிய வம்சம்" came, this one became so famous and this dish is almost renamed as "Surya vamsam uppuma"!! ;) ;)

Though I love idlies, am not a big fan of this uppuma. guessed it right! DH is a great fan of Idli uppuma! :) Seldom I make this and whenever he sees this tiffin, his face will become instantly happy! This week i prepared it and he had it for breakfast as well as lunch! :)

Leftover idlies-6 (One can use fresh idlies too, but its easy to do with refrigerated idlies)
Green chillies-3
Red chilly-1
Mustard seeds-1/2teaspoon
Curry leaves-few
Channa dhal-1teaspoon
Urad dhal-1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder(optional)-1/8teaspoon

Break and mash the idlies into fine pieces.
Cut the onions and green chillies into length wise pieces.
Heat oil in a wide pan, make the tempering with mustard seeds, followed by channa dhal,urad dhal. Once the dhals turn into golden colour, add the curry leaves,onion ,green chillies, broken red chilly and turmeric powder.
Fry till the onions become transparent.
Now add the mashed idlies and stir well with the onions.
Reduce the flame to low and cook for 2-3 minutes and put off the flame.
Yummy Idli uppuma is ready!
