Pepper Idli

I had some left over idlies. Normally if I had any left over I make idli upuma Method 1 or 2nd method with kollu podi or Masala idli with all the masala. I remember having pepper idli at my friends place quite some time ago I tried last week and it tasted good. So tried again this week and this time I was able to take photos.
