Podi Idly Upma / Chutney Powder Idly Upma

This is a simple variation to usual idly upma. I make this whenever I get bored of our regular idly upma. I've not yet posted the usual idly upma recipe too. I'l be posting it soon.

Ingredients:

1. Idly - 8 (Fresh or leftover)
2. Onion - 1/2 Cup (Finely Chopped)
3. Red Chillies - 2 (If you need upma to be more spicy else don't add!)
4. Urad dhal - 1 tsp
5. Mustard - 1 tsp
6. Oil - 1 tbs
7. Idly podi/chutney powder - 3 tsp or adjust to your taste
8. Curry Leaf - Small qty



Procedure :

1. Crumble idlies. Add the chutney powder.
2. Mix both the crumbled idlies and chutney powder together.
3. Just add a tsp of oil to this mixture. Keep aside.
4. Now, in a pan add the remaining oil.
5. Add mustard, wait till it pops. Now, add urad dhal and red chillies. Fry well.
6. When Urad dhal turns golden brown, add the onion and curry leaf.
7. Fry till onion turns golden brown.
8. Add the idly and chutney powder mixture. Medium the stove.
9. Mix completely. Keep as such for few minutes.
10. Turn off the stove.
11. Serve hot. No side dish is needed.




Note :

1. Don't add extra salt because there would be salt in idly as well in chutney powder.
2. If you don't have onion or you don't like onion, you can make it without onion too. That would also taste great.

Thank you Dear Friends for your comments..

@Divya, chutney powder or idly podi or idly milagai podi is made out of chillies, urad dhal, sesame, etc..this is the best side dish for idly or dosai..I'l post the recipe for idly podi soon:-)

Loved the idli upma. Even I make the same way and a roaring hit at home, sometimes much more than the idlis itself :):)
