Idli upma

A twist to the idli which we normally eat with sambar and chutney. No doubt idli with sambar and chutney is a yummy combination. This is a simple recipe that can be eaten by itself. No hassle of making the sides. In the mango season add grated raw mango instead of lime juice which makes this extra special.

Onion 1 sliced thin long
Chutney powder/idli powder 6 tsp
salt 1/2 tsp
oil 3 tsp
grated mango 1 tblsp or lime juice 1/2 tsp
