Idli upma from leftover idlis step-by-step recipe with photos.
Idli upma is the perfect way to give your regular idlis a twist or use up leftover idlis. But more importantly, we love this dish because it is gluten-free. My daughter is on a gluten-free diet but loves upma or uppittu; so this is the best way to make what she loves without having to compromise on her health.
Idli upma is also a great way to add a serving of vegetables along with idlis. Idlis are very healthy as they are fermented. Adding some vegetables are a perfect way to turn them into a complete meal.
To make idli upma, I saute onions with minimal spices, add the vegetables and saute them. I then add crumbled idlis and give everything a good mix. If idlis are ready, this dish is ready in less than 15 minutes.
If your idlis get too hard when preparing, this is the best way to use it up. This dish can be prepared in no time and are great for the lunch box too. It can be served on its own but tastes great with chutney too.
