Idli Upma is the most simple and easy tiffin variety that is made quickly with the leftover idlies. Its the most tastiest upma than the other upma varieties. This taste heavenly with the cup of tea.

My Notes :

1. Use left over idlies for this upma. If you use fresh idli you will not get crumble texture.

2. If needed add fried cashews at last.

3. Add salt very little as already salt in idli .
