Muttai Idli Upma

My husband made this dish one night, apparently he had seen this recipe in YouTube and he wanted to make it. I have only made plain idli upma, this seemed like a wonderful idea! You can have this as a breakfast or even as a snack. He made this with left over idlis from the morning.

1. You can make this with fresh idli as well. If the idli is soft, then refrigerate it for sometime before cutting it.
2. You can add a bit of lemon juice too.
3. You can crumble the idlis too instead of chopping into cubes.

Until next time,
