Idli Upma

Idli upma is one of the great ways to use the leftover idlis. Mom used to prepare this often and it was my favourite during school days. After marriage I completely forgot about it. This makes a great filling dish when your kid comes home after school. When I asked hubby whether he wanted idli upma for evening, he told that he has never tasted it. Only he knows it from the Tamil movie Suryavamsam in which the heroine prepares it for her dad and it was a very emotional scene. I teased him a little and prepared this one day. I also serve him with coconut chutney. My daughter has not yet grown to appreciate this dish but this is my school time favourite. Today is the final week of Blogging Marathon which runs for three days. I am posting under Kid's Delight-Evening Snacks and Tiffin started by Srivalli and hosted by Vardini Koushik. I am also  linking this to Walk Through Memory Lane Event started by me and hosted by Pradnya. This is very easy to make and if you have idlis remaining after breakfast, you can make it in 10minutes. Kids will surely enjoy this as I did.
