Idly Upma / Siyyali

Whenever there are left over idlies of the morning breakfast , my grany used to do this upma in the evenings . We used to call it as idly upma ( coz upma is made out of idlies ) . But she wont add pappulapodi . She used to do like normal upma and finally sprinkle enough lemon juice and endsup . But i saw adding pappulapodi in this recipe in my frds blog and thought of trying this . Anyway it was fantastic and almost similar to my grany's taste.

Preparation :-

  • Take leftover idlies and crush them with hand .

  • First we need to prepare pappulapodi . For that we need roasted bengal gram (putnalu) , garlic pods , dry red chillies or red chilly powder , salt and cumin seeds /cumin powder. If u r using dry red chillies , slightly roast them . Grind all the ingredients into a fine powder.( Add enough salt and chilly powder hereitself that the complete upma needs)

  • Heat a pan add oil , do seasoning by adding urad dal , dry red chillies , chana dal , cumin seeds , mustard seeds , pinch of hing / asafoetida , few sprigs of curry leaves .

  • After that add chopped onions . Fry them nicely . Add enough turmeric and little salt .

  • When onion is fried add crushed idly powder and mix nicely .

  • Now add pappulapodi . Mix nicely .

  • Finally add chopped coriander leaves . When it turns hot u can switchoff stove.

  • Squeeze enough lemon juice , mix well and serve hot .
