Idly Upma - Kid's Favourites

Everybody has leftover idly extra by 2 or 3. Early morning, it is served as breakfast and for lunch , it is tranformed in to upma:) This makes a lot of difference for kids and adults too..Also, it is very easy to make .People just love it.Especially kids. When they are in school they feel very hungry after a long time learning things, and also feel bored to eat the same idly which they ate in the morning.When they open the Lunch box to find the delicious colorful Idly upma ,they will surely love it.It feels light and also full at the same time.Not only idly is good for health, also we can add vegetables to make it healthier.
