Idle Usli ( Seasoned Left over Idlis)

Idle Usli is a very quick breakfast. This will be ready within 10 minutes. If you have left over idlis and want to try something different, then this is one such dish. I always prefer idle usli over idlis, especially if it is seasoned using coconut oil. Freshly grated coconut gives a very good taste to this dish.

  • Left over Idlis- 11-12
  • Oil (preferably Coconut oil)- 2 tsp
  • Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
  • Curry leaves- Few
  • Dry red chilli- 1
  • Green chilli- 2-3 
  • Split blackgram/Urad dal- 1 tsp
  • Asafoetida- 2 pinches
  • Grated coconut, fresh/frozen)- 3-4 Tbsp
  • Salt- To taste

Powder/Crush the left over idlis using hand such that there are no big pieces.

Heat oil. Add mustard seeds. Once it starts spluttering, add chopped green chillies, broken red chilli and curry leaves. Fry for few seconds. Now add urad dal and asafoetida. Fry until urad dal turns light brown.

Now add the powdered/crushed idli, along with grated coconut and salt. Mix well. Fry for 4-5 minutes. Turn off the heat.

Idle Usli is ready!!

Serve it hot. Above measurement serves two people.
