Try out this variation of Idlies..!
Sometimes we get bored of idlies with side dishes. At that time we think over to make Idlies in different variation named idli upma. It is an interesting alternative for usual Idlies. We can make 
idli upma with special blend of spices using fresh idlies. 

How to make Idli upma?


Fresh idlies  Four
Sesame oil one spoon
Bellary onion one
Red chillies three
Curry leaves one sprig
Cilantro leaves chopped half cup
Mustard seeds on spoon
Chana dal one tablespoon
Turmeric half spoon
Asafoetida half pinch
Cashews 8 nos
Cooking oil one tablespoon


Pour one spoon of sesame oil and little salt is added since the Idlies already have salt.
Cut the onions. 
Split the red chillies
Heat the wok with cooking oil over a medium flame.
Add mustard seeds and wait to crackle
Add onions, red chillies, curry leaves and chana dal and turmeric.
Saute them in a low flame.
Then transfer the idli crumbles into the tempering wok.
Stir well until all the ingredients mix together.
Stir under low flame for one second.
Add coriander/cilantro leaves .
Add the dry roasted cashew bits to enrich the taste.

Note: Since the idlies have a nice tanginess, the idli upma is so yummy with the unique blend of spices and crunchy cashew bits and chana dals. You can observe the nice flavor of cilantro leaves.

Enjoy this delicious upma as quick time breakfast or tea time tiffin. No doubt, kids and adults will love this fantabulous dish..
