Idli Usli or Upma

konkani idli usli or upma
Earlier I had blogged about Idli Fry. Here is another easy and fast snack made from leftover idlis. In Konkani, we call this as Idli Usli. You might know it as Idli Upma.

Idli - 10 small
Grated Coconut - about 3/4 cup
Green Chilies - 6
Curry Leaves/Kadipata - a sprig
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Asafetida/Hing - 1/4 tsp
Oil preferably Coconut Oil

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