Lemony idli uppuma

We ,back home, are  a big family and always  guests are common. So, it is not uncommon to have leftover idlis. Whenever ildi is leftover  my grandma makes a yummy uppuma with it for an evening snack.

Here in US , I go by measuring cups and calculations never fail. Even that is boring. So, I went on and made extra idlis wantedly  last night and made this uppuma for breakfast. I made a little trick with the limes and was as tasty as my granny’s.
