Protein Packed Idli Upma

When I was making idlis, I was hoping that I can have leftovers so I can make this upma. Because its perfect for breakfast , snack or any time munching. In my house we don't consume that much idlis but we are big on dosa , uttapam and pessarattu fans so when someone comes for lunch that time I make idlis, because its filling and fast too. So at the end of the day I had 10 idlis left. I was happy because it is enough to feed two of us for breakfast. Mean time my tea get ready, I made this protein packed upma.

Ingredients :

10 Idlis (rice cakes)
1 onion chopped finely
1 green chili chopped finely
fistful of black beans (yes that's how I measure)
fistful of frozen corn
1/2  tsp.. each udad dal and chana dal
few curry leaves
salt to taste
1/2 tsp. mustard seeds
1 tsp. turmeric powder
1 tsp. red chili powder
lime juice to taste
2 tsp. oil

Method:

Soak all the idlis in water for 30 seconds and squeeze the water out and mashed it.
Heat a pan , add oil, when its hot, add mustard seeds, when its cracked, add udad dal , chana dal , curry leaves.
When dals become pink, add onion and chilies and cook till its pink.
Add black beans and corn , turmeric powder, red chili powder and cook till its warm.
Add mashed idlis and cook on medium flame till its become hot. Add salt.
When its done, sprinkle lime juice and serve hot with a cup of tea / coffee or have it as it is.
