Paruppu Idli Upma | Dal Idli Upma

Paruppu Idli Upma
Dealing with a fussy eater is a toughest job in this world. Being a mom of a picky eating kid, I usually try various ways to add all the ingredients. My son likes idli or dosa but refuses to take sambar. He never takes any kind of dal these days. So I used to make adai or make these types of idli. You can make it as plain idli or dosa as well. I personally loved the dosa made with this batter. It was very soft and tasty.
