Peppered Idli Upma

Idly upma is usually prepared with leftover or a day before prepared idlies, i make it very rarely and whenever i prepare idly,i'll definitely keep aside few idlies just to make idly upma with it specially for me. This time i prepared this usual idly upma with pepper powder and cooked split yellow moongdal to give a nutritious twist. They turned out simply awesome and delicious. This idly upma gets ready in less time eventhough you need to soak the yellow moongdal and cook it aside. Dont forget to make this peppered idly upma next time if you want to give a twist to usual idli upma, am sending this dish to Kalyani's Magic Mingle.

6nos Idlis
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1tsp Channadal
1/2tsp Urad dal
Few curry leaves
1no Onion (big & chopped)
1/2cup Yellow split moongdal (soaked for half an hour)
1/2tsp Pepper powder
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1/2tsp Grated ginger
A pinch Asafoetida powder
1/4tsp Turmeric powder

Take the idlis in a mixie jar, give a quick pulse to get a coarse mixture of idli,meanwhile cook the moongdal until they gets partially cooked in a vessel, drain the excess of water and keep aside.

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..

Now add the pulsed idlis,cooked moongdal,pepper powder,turmeric powder and salt, cook everything simmer for few minutes, serve warm.
