Idli Upma

Cooks in: 20 Minutes Serves: 2 People

The leftover idlis are usually converted into upma to give them new life. Onion is sauted along with seasoning and idlis are added after crumbling and cooked briefly. I made the upma more healthy by adding veggies.

  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Onion
  • 1 Cup Chopped mixed Veggies (potato, carrot, beans)

  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp Idli Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1/8 Tsp asafoetida
  • 10 Chopped Curry Leaves

Directions:

  1. In a 2 Ltr Cooker add as follows:
  2. Layer 1 : 1 Tbsp each of Water and Oil
  3. Layer 2 : Chopped Onion
  4. Layer 3 : Chopped veggies, curry leaves, ginger
  5. Layer 4 : Salt, Idli Powder, Asafoetida, turmeric powder.
  6. Cook for 2 whistles. Manually release pressure. Add a seasoning of 1/2 tsp mustard seeds, 1 tsp each of urad dal and chana dal in a tsp of oil. Mix in crumbled idlis and mix well. Keep covered for 10 Minutes.
  7. A healthy breakfast is ready in 10 minutes.
