Idli upma? Give me 3 times a day for breakfast, lunch and dinner, I can have it without complaining life long. I love it like that. Any upma is my favorite, but this is one easy and unique upma made from the leftover idlies. We call it udhuthu kulukal, which means crumbling and tossing. There must be a lot of variants in this idli upma, but this is the way I like. My mom makes it without carrot and I love that simple version first, but my MIL adds carrot in all possible dishes, including this idli upma to make it eye appealing. In the beginning I used to not like the addition of carrots as I felt it suppresses the onion flavor a bit, but now I like this variation too. My mom tempers with coconut oil and the fresh green chilies, onions and curry leaves tossed together gives a divine smell. Its simple but packed with flavors. I have seen many of my friends love idli upma but sadly its opposite when it comes to the guys in the family. Nobody likes it, I dont know why. This can be made along with tea with the leftover idlies from your morning breakfast. I most of the times become lazy to make idli upma and have the aaripona idli itself. It’s best only when someone makes you sit, prepare and gives you. Atleast for me, I many times get emotional when I am hungry and no one is there to make something for you Or no one cares to make you sit and give your course of meal hot.
Serve hot, can be had as such or best with sugar😊
