Paruppu Podi Idli Upma/Idli Upma with Dal Spice Powder

Idli, this steamed rice cakes are the most favourite Breakfast of South Indians especially for Tamilians. Idli batter is a life saver and most of the South Indian house will definitely have this batter to serve some crispy dosas or spongy idlies to their family easily or else to treat some sudden guests with many delicious dishes out of this idli batter. Leftover idlis can also suits prefectly to make excellent breakfast the next day too. Obviously if i make idlis, i dont forget to keep aside few idlis to make my favourite idli upma out of it. With simple ingredients, those leftover idlies makes a super delicious filling breakfast. Though many versions of idli upma do exists, my today's post is one of the easiest upma, you can dish out quickly with less efforts.

Paruppu podi idli upma

No chopping, no sauting for hours is needed, just scrambled leftover idlis when tempered with usual ingredients and spiced with South Indian paruppu podi aka spiced dal powder and tossed with some grated coconut makes this excellent breakfast. Drizzled with lemon juice, you can enjoy this mildly spiced idli upma happily. Not to forget that this upma calls for three ingredients if the tempered spices are considered as an ingredient. And this post is going to this week's blogging marathon as am running with 3 ingredients ideas as theme.Sending to Kid's Delight - Brunch Ideas for Kids hosted by Priya Srinivasan, an event by Srivalli.
