Left Over Idlis with Carrot


I always have left over Idlis when I prepare Idlis for breakfast or dinner. When I am in need of snacks, Indian recipe style, all I do is saute the crumbled cold refrigerated idlis with a spiced base of onions and lots of fresh coriander leaves. I tend to play with the spices each time I go the crumbled idli upma way.

Recently, I prepared a version of Idli Upma with fresh coconut and carrot being the star players. It made for a visually appealing, filling, delicious and healthy evening snack for my son, Nehal. Use fresh coriander leaves which give a herb-y flavor to the dish.

  3. This is a great and healthy way to use leftover idlis… i usually make fried idlis with a few sauces thrown in for an extra tang. but this is a good option…

    But this works only with the refrigerated idlis, not the fresh ones.
