Coming to today's recipe, very simple and nice transformation of left over idly. I got this idea from Priya sreeram's sizzling tangy idly recipe. She deep fried the idlys with pickle and idly podi. But i don't have heart to deep fry idly so I tried in simple and yummy idly upma. with cut Mango pickle and Milagai podi. It was so yummy and i love the tangy pickle taste n flavor along with crunchy ginger. Really a drool worthy recipe...try this, definitely u will love it... , i just love this with tomato ketchup. yum..yum...Now to  the yummy Pickle Idly Upma...
