Have some left over Idli’s from morning? Try this Idli upma with onions, green chilly,carrot and green bell pepper. Its simple light dish which is perfect for the kids for their afternoon snack.
I grate the carrot, which gives slight sweetness to the upma which my kids seem to like. Serve this upma with a cup of milk. And they are good to go until dinner time.
Two things accomplished-
Left overs gone + afternoon snack taken care = Happy Mom!
- Idlis- 6
- small onion- 1 (finely chopped)
- Small green bell pepper- 1 (chopped)
- carrot- 1 grated
- green chilly- 2 slit
- tamarind pulp to taste
- salt to taste and
- coriander for garnish
Take the idli in you palm and slightly break them. Few chunky pieces here and there is ok.
Take a pan add two tsps of oil, once the oil gets hot add the mustard seeds. When the mustard starts popping add one tsp of chana dal , 1/2 tsp of cumin seeds, 1/2 tsp of turmeric and a pinch of hing. Fry for few seconds.
Now add the green chilly, onion, bell pepper and cook till soft. Add the grated carrot, mix and cook for a minute. Now add the tamarind pulp and salt to taste. Mix it well. At last add the Idli pieces and mix. Finally garnish with some fresh coriander leaves.
