Upma made of Leftover Dhokla

leftover Dhokla Upma
Dhokla is well known as a steamed Gujarati breakfast.  Today's recipe is of a South Indian Upma made of leftover Gujarati Khaman Dhokla.  You might have read my previous post of a similar recipe - Idli Usli or Upma.

Dhokla - about 4 cups
Shredded Coconut (fresh or frozen) - about 1/2 cup
Green Chillies - 2
Curry Leaves/Kadipata - a sprig
Coriander/Cilantro Leaves - few sprigs
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida/Hing - 1/4 tsp

How to prepare Upma of leftover Dhokla:
  • Pat the curry leaves and green chillies dry.  Slit the chillies lengthwise.  Finely chop cilantro.  Crumble the dhokla pieces with hands to a powder.
  • Heat about 1 tbsp oil in a pan.  Add mustard seeds, curry leaves, asafoetida and green chillies.  When mustard seeds pop, add dhokla,cilantro and coconut.  Saute at low flame until all the ingredients are mixed well, about 2 - 3 minutes.  Add little salt and/or sugar if required.  Dhokla has enough salt, you may not need to add more salt.
Enjoy instant Upma made of leftover Dhokla with a cup of tea.
