Egg n Paneer IdlyUpma / Breakfast Recipe

Hi Friends, Hope you all had a great Christmas yesterday!!! We had a lovely drive on Christmas night, enjoyed the city filled everywhere with lights and stars :)

My today's post is on healthy breakfast with the leftover idlis. Idly upma, very simple and easy recipe to prepare and tasty too but my hubby hates this dish. So, I tried little twist with the ingredients of his favorites and served with tomato sauce. He just loved it and asked for an extra spoon. Am really very happy that my trick worked well so planning to try few more recipes with the leftover idlis..Will post them later after trying. Adding egg is optional.. Lots of veggies can also be included in this to make it more tasty n healthy. Perfect breakfast and evening snack to serve with tomato or chilly sauce.
