Idli Upma / Masala Idli is one of the simplest and conventional breakfast dish. I generally use the leftover idlis from the breakfast and make Masala Upma out of it and have it for evening snack. After tasting this yummy dish, my granddaughter prefer to have this for her lunch box instead of the regular idli as this is more delicious than our regular idlis. So for her nowadays I am making this masala idli regularly with fresh idli without waiting for leftover!!!
