Left Over magic ~ Idli usli and Photos :)

After almost a month I am back to blogging.. This break was not intended but was busy with quite a few things and could not blog for a while. Here are few pics of the Lupu Bridge. We had been there on our anniversary :) These were long due.

Coming back to today's post it is simple recipe to use up leftover idli. Idli is the most common breakfast item at our place. Though I am not very fond of idli I love its variations. This is one of the simplest way of using it up.

What's needed:
10-12 Idli's
2-3 green Chilli's slit
3-4 Curry leaves
a pinch of Asafoetida/Hing
Salt and Sugar to taste
1/4 tsp Mustard seeds
few Urad Dal
Oil
2 tbsp grated Coconut to garnish
Procedure:
1) Finely crush the idli's with hand to resemble rava. Mix salt and sugar.
2) Heat oil. Add in the mustard seeds. When they splutter add the urad dal and curry leaves and fry until urad dal turns pinkish. Add green chilli's,hing and fry for a min.
3) Add the idli and mix well so that it is uniformly distributed.
4) Garnish with grated coconut and serve hot.
On another note, I have recieved a lot of awards from my dear friend Aparna. Thank you dear. I have added them in my side bar. This is for all my dear friends who support me with kind comments and suggestions :) Thank you everyone.
