Microwave Version ~ Borugula Upma / Puffed Rice Upma / Mandakki Uppittu

Today happens to be the last day of the first session of BM#8. Check what other marathoners have been cooking so far.
I tried to come up with a menu during this marathon with the theme "Microwave Cooking" and I posted so far

I was not ready with today's post and had to cook and draft the post after returning home from my vacation. This marathon thing gets surely addictive. :) Puffed rice upma is one of the quickest and yummy breakfast / snack item that can be prepared and using a microwave surely cuts down the time.

Ingredients: (2 - 3 servings)
1-2 Tbsp oil
2 Tbsp peanuts
1 tsp chana dal
1 tsp mustard seeds
few curry leaves
1/8 tsp turmeric powder
3 green chillies finely minced (I used Serrano Peppers)
1 onion, finely minced
7 cups puffed rice
Salt to taste

Heat oil in a microwave safe bowl, about two minutes. Add the peanuts, chana dal, mustard seeds and curry leaves. When peanuts turn golden brown, add chillies and turmeric powder and cook for a minute more. Then add the onion and mix well. Cook till it turns translucent.
In the mean time, wash the puffed rice in a colander and drain well. Add this puffed rice and salt to the cooked onion mixture. Continue to cook, covered for about 4 -5 minutes. Remove the bowl and serve hot.
