Idly upma with idly podi

This is one of the dish that came out of my creativity. I was planning to prepare idly upma one day and i was thinking of the common comment from my husband for this dish "This is tasty except not spicy(kaaram)' So i was thinking what can i do to fill that instead of adding green chilly. Then i thought why not i sprinkle idly podi at the end which will surely add more spicy to the dish and this came like that. My husband liked it a lot and our breakfast went on well that day :) Hope you also like it.

Items required:

Idly - 8 nos
Curry leaves, mustard seeds, urad dhal, red chilly - for seasoning
idly podi - 3 tablespoons


Prepare idlies and keep it for dry for sometime. Now smash the idlies nicely. Heat oil in a kadai and add the seasoning items. Add a pinch of turmeric powder and add the smashed idly to it. Now sprinkle little amount of salt and mix all of them well. After 2 mins sprinkle the idly podi over the upma evenly and add some amount of oil and mix it well. Remove from flame after 2 mins.

Hot and spicy idly upma with podi is ready :)
