Idli Usli / Idli Upuma

We make Idlis a lot at home and most of them gets over in a few minutes it is made.. They are often enjoyed hot with chutney and sambar!!! However they are some recipes that are perfect with room temperature idli and this one is a great option for tiffin, lunchbox or even breakfast. I have made it simple and homey, You could add more masalas, tomatoes, cashew and paneer also… I chose this for I - Regional.
