Here you go with one of the easiest breakfast/dinner ever.Do you have a bunch of people at home who detest leftover idli.Just try masking those idlis with a flavorful seasoning and there you get an entirely new dish that the same people would love :).Idly upma is such a tasty dish,that it is hard to believe that is made from our own humble idly.Addition of carrots add to the color and nutrition here(can I ever cook something without sneaking veggies 😛 ). Try this recipes with leftover idlis and you will never ever complain about having left over idlis.
