Idli Upma (Tamil Breakfast Recipe)

I have always called this – best out of waste ! Well, the idea was to make use of leftover idli’s and to have something as delicious.It just takes “2 minutes”,check the clock as it ticks…
I always make the Idli’s overnight if I need to have them for breakfast because they taste best when the Idli’s are kept for few hours.Do not try making in fresh Idli’s as they refrain from retaining the shape when we mix them with the spices.


Idli- 4

Onion – 1 Chopped

Tomato – 1-2 Chopped

Curry leaves- few leaves

Mustard seeds – 1 tsp

Udad Dal- 1 tsp

Hing – pinch

Turmeric – pinch

Garam Masala – 1/2 Tsp

Gingerlly Oil- 1 tbsp


1. Cut Idli in equal size

2. Heat Oil and saute with mustard seeds, hing and Udad Dal.

3. Put the chopped onions , tomatoes and curry leaves

4. Cook till the tomatoes are soft, add idli pieces and garam masala

5. Mix well. Garnish with coriander leaves and server hot.
