Method of preparation:
Crush the sun dried wadi with a pestle into small bits.

Check occasionally to make sure wadi doesn’t dry out and sprinkle more water if required.
The wadi has to be soft without any hard lumps but not mushy.
Heat oil in a pan, add all talimpu ingredients in order.
When mustard seeds start spluttering, add onion.
When onion turns brown around the edges, add green chiles.
Fry briefly and add soaked wadi and turmeric powder.
Cook covered for few seconds till wadi becomes soft.
Uncover and stir fry for a minute or two to evaporate most of the moisture.
Stir in coconut and remove from heat.
Serve sun dried wadi upma as a breakfast or as a snack.
