there are several ways the idli upma is prepared with the leftover idli’s. in this recipe, i have crumbled idli’s roughly and tried to have the traditional rava upma texture. however, the other popular variation is to cut the idli’s into square-shaped cubes and the saute with spices and seasoning ingredients. in addition, you may also find some recipes having finely chopped vegetables. it may include onion, capsicum, and even tomatoes which makes it flavoured and tasty. however, i have kept it very simple in this recipe as i personally do not like to have mushy upma. basically adding more veggies can add more moisture and eventually making upma mushy and sticky. nevertheless, if you like to extend it, you can add these and saute it before adding the crumbled idli’s.

while the idli upma recipe is extremely simple to prepare, yet some tips and suggestions while preparing it. firstly, the idli i have prepared these idli’s with idli rava which makes it more crumbly and crisp. hence i would recommend the same rather than rice and urad dal based which makes idli chewy and rubbery. secondly, the most important tip is not to prepare the idli’s with hot or freshly prepared idli’s. basically, the leftover idli is ideal with less moist and room temperature. finally, the recipe is ideal when served warm and fresh, or otherwise, you may find difficult to consume and swallow. alternatively, you can crumble it and keep it ready to prepare it whenever you ready to serve.
