Idli Upma with Leftover Idli and First Prize of my life/ Leftover Recipe/ Quick Snacks/

Idli Upma with Leftover Idli for Evening of Holi 
First Prize of My life/
Leftover Recipe/
Quick Snacks for Holi

Hi Friends,
I am very very happy today as first time i have won prize in a contest run by Amy of co sponsored by Marine Chemicals. I have won 3rd and 4th prize at the contest. I am really so so happy about this prize. I will get 8 china grass packets. I am eagerly waiting for them as i hardly get any china grass here. I have lots of recipes in my mind to try with it. Hope this wait will get over soon. I know there must be something special to celebrate this occasion  I will soon upload something for this win. Till then enjoy this spicy quick and yummy snack.
Yesterday on Holi i made Idli Sambar for breakfast. As i am recovering from my health issues so i didn't made any elaborated meal for the occasion. but i was prepeared to make some evening snack for this occassion. I was clueless that what should i make which should be less time consuming. At the evening i saw few idlies lying in the fridge. As summers arrived here already so just wanted to use them up as soon as possible. I thought for few minutes and decided to make Idli Upma. I never made it earlier. So used my imagination and made this within 5 minutes. Easy peasy, yummy snack for Holi evening was ready within minutes and for accompaniment i made strawberry shake (recipe coming soon). Both went great together as spiciness of upma went away with strawberry shake. I was very happy with the outcome. My hubby liked it very much. Hope you will like it too.
