Greengram Idli Upma

Its been ages i prepared upma with leftover idlis,i simply prepared this wonderful looking upma last week with some leftover greengram idlis sitting sadly in my fridge..This upma goes for a quick,simple preparation..This delicious upma with those protein packed steamed idlis turned out simply addictive...This idli upma doesnt need any side dish to enjoy and we loved it..Definitely a filling upma to have either for breakfast or simply for a quick dinner..Sending my own event CWS-Moongbeans..

5nos Greengram Idli
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1tsp Channadal
1/2tso Urad dal
Few curry leaves
1no Onion (big & chopped)
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1/2tsp Grated ginger
A pinch Asafoetida powder
1/4tsp Turmeric powder

Pulse the leftover idlis in mixie until they turns as a coarse powder like texture..Heat enough oil, fry the mustard seeds, channadal,urad dal,curry leaves, asafeotida powder,add immediately the chopped onions,slit opened green chillies and curry leaves, saute until the onions turns transculent..
