Uppuma (Upma) is one of the savory dishes made for Breakfast in southern parts of India. It is cooked as a thick porridge from coarse rice flour or semolina. However, here is my recipe where you can turn your left-over Idlis into tasteful uppuma

Step 1: Crumble the Left-over Idlis

Idli is a traditional breakfast in most parts of South India. it is made from the fermented batter consisting rice and black lentils. Some times we have some left-over idlis after everybody takes breakfast. Using your fingers lightly crumble the leftover idlis as shown in the picture here and keep it aside.

Step 2: Slice Handful of Onions

I have used small onions (Shallots) here which gives more taste than the normal big onions.

Clean a handful of small onions and cut them into small pieces. You can add as much onion you like, it gives more taste to the Idli Uppuma.

Step 3: Other Ingredients
