Idli Usli or Idli Upma

konkani idli usli or upma
Earlier I had blogged about Idli Fry.  Here is another easy and fast snack made from leftover idlis.

Ingredients:
Idlis - 10 small
Grated Coconut - about 3/4 cup
Green Chillies - 6
Curry Leaves/Kadipata - a sprig
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida/Hing - 1/4 tsp
Oil preferably Coconut Oil
Salt

Method:
1. Crumble the idlis with hands to a powder. Add salt keeping in mind that idlis do have little salt.  Mix and keep it aside. 
2. Wash green chillies, curry leaves.  Pat them dry to avoid oil spluttering.  Slit the green chillies lengthwise.
3. Heat 2 - 3 tbsp coconut oil in a pan.  Add mustard seeds, green chillies, curry leaves and asafoetida.  When mustard seeds pop, add crumbled idlis and grated coconut.  Saute at low flame to mix all the ingredients for about 5 minutes.
4. Simple yet tasty Idly Upma is ready.
