Ragi Idly Upma( Finger Millet Savoury Cake Upma)

Ragi Idli Upma is one of the breakfast recipes made from leftover ragi idli’s. I have seen people make this recipe in simple way by just tampering and adding it to mashed leftover idlies.Even I followed the same but made it a bit healthier. Sometimes idli may taste tangling or even become hard to eat. In order to remove that flavor, I added vegetables. It doesn’t even need any side dish, it can be served as breakfast or as evening tiffin. Sometimes I make idlis in bulk to use the leftover for next day’s breakfast as its quick to put it together.
