Horse gram idli upma | Idli uppittu | Mashed and seasoned idli : Left over magic

I always plan & make idlis in bulk so that I can use the left overs to make idli oggarane, idli upma, podi idli etc. In fact, I love these left over dishes more than the plain idlis :)
Here is my version of the idli upma with bell peppers.

Preparation Time: 5 mins
Cooking Time: 10 mins
Serves: 1 

Left over idlis: 4 nos*
Oil: 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds: 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves: 3-4 nos, torn
Green chili: 1 no, chopped
Onion: 1 small, chopped fine
Bell pepper: 1/4th cup
Salt: As needed
Lemon juice: 1 tsp

* I have used the hurali idli / horse gram idli

Heat oil in a broad pan.
When oil is hot, throw in the mustard seeds. When seeds splutter, add in the curry leaves & green chili. When leaves wilt, add the chopped onion & saute till the onions become translucent.
Meantime, mash the idlis & keep them aside.
Throw in the chopped bell pepper to the sauteed onions. Saute the bell pepper on high heat until crunchy.
Add in the mashed idlis, salt & mix well.
Add the lemon juice, mix well & turn off the heat.
Serve the idli upma with a chutney/dip of your choice.
