so usually i make idly upma for me and idly for others.
Last month when we had sandy(storm, wonder why they keep Girl names!!),As a precaution my husband wanted me to make idly and keep so made idly that will last for 2 days and refrigerated(no idea why he asked me to do that!Anyways.... we were fortunate enough that we were not affected my sandy. so My Idlies we in fridge for 2 days. I have never kept idly in Fridge. as it becomes hard, Of course many reheat and eat.But I don't like to microwave my food.So when i took out my idly after 2days i did not want to reheat and eat so decided to do upma as usual. when i crumbled it it came out as coarse powder...which was different for me. Normally it will be like small chunks.But seeing crumbs i though why not do like Vegetable upma and made this and liked it .
