We ,back home, are a big family and always guests are common. So, it is not uncommon to have leftover idlis. Whenever ildi is leftover my grandma makes a yummy uppuma with it for an evening snack.
Here in US , I go by measuring cups and calculations never fail. Even that is boring. So, I went on and made extra idlis wantedly last night and made this uppuma for breakfast. I made a little trick with the limes and was as tasty as my granny’s.
Leftover idlis: 12 nos
Two big onions
Ginger- 1 inch piece
Green chillies- 3 or 4
Lime- 1 no
Cashews- To taste

Break the idlis into tiny bits .Smaller the better. Chop the onions and ginger finely. Heat oil in a skillet, sputter mustard seeds,followed by urad dall, gram dall, roasted peanuts and curry leaves in the order said. Throw the ginger bits and onion next. Let the onions turn transparent. Sprinkle little tumeric powder. Add the idlis and salt to taste. Saute well. Add lime juice at the end and serve with cilantro and roasted cashews.
