What would you do with left over Idli's?

The instantaneous answer would be dip those left over Idli's in some water, steam them and eat it :-) isn't it easy? Well before you close this window and think that I have gone crazy, let me tell what I do with leftover Idli's. I do exactly the same as above ;-) sometimes.., I know u all must be cursing me now while reading this post; someother time I choose to do something different and I call it ' total make over of Idli'. ........before I recieve any rotten eggs...here u go with the recipe.. :D ;-)

Idli Upma

Idlis - 6 ... as many as left over (on purpose left overs also can)
Onion- 1
Curry leaves
Green Chillies - 2 or as per ur spice levels

salt as required
Coriander and grated coconut for garnishing

Tampering/Tadka

Oil- 1tbsp or as required
mustard
Chanadal n urad dal
a pinch of turmeric

Break/powder the Idlis using your hands. Keep them aside. Heat oil in a pan add tadka ingrediants in the order mentioned; Next to go in to the pan is green chillies, onion n curry leaves follows. Fry onions till they are soft. Add powdered idlis and stirr. Switch of the stove and keep it closed for a while till the flavors get mixed. Garnish with coriander and grated coconut. Slurrrp...it is ready to eat!!

Neat idea! I made this once...the first time i made idlis. That time the only way for us to consume my solid rock-hard idlis was to crush them and garnish them with some seasoning and tadka :))
