Biyyapu Rava Upma / Rice Rava Upma / Akki Tari Uppittu


To those who are wondering about me, I am alive and kicking. :) I planned to take a small break during summer because of my India trip. However the actual trip, unpacking, jet lag and falling back to my routine took a while, extending my hiatus to more than a couple of months. After being away, I began feeling like a lost toddler and somewhat grew apprehensive about blogging again. Funny but it happens each time I take a break. :)
To be honest, Srivalli's Blogging marathon #21 brought me back this time and this week, there are going to be some "Upma" posts as this is my chosen theme. These are going to be those upmas that are prepared regularly at my home and haven't appeared yet on my blog. The first one is this simple, delicious and filling upma prepared using rice rava / broken rice.

Ingredients:
1.5 cups rice sooji / biyyapu rava / broken rice / akki tari
5 - 6 chillies, chopped fine (More or less depending upon the heat of chillies.)
Few curry leaves
1/2 cup coconut
Salt to taste
For tadka:
2 Tbsp oil, 1 tsp chana dal / Bengal gram,  1tsp urad dal / split black gram, 1 tsp jeera / cumin seeds, 1 tsp mustard seeds

Method:
* Dry toast the sooji on medium flame until it starts to change color. Remove and keep aside.
* Heat oil in  a pan / kadai. Add the tadka ingredients in the order mentioned. When the dals start to turn reddish, add the chillies and curry leaves. Saute for about 20 - 30 seconds.
* Next add 3 cups of water, salt and coconut to the pan. Bring the water to a rolling boil, lower the heat and add the sooji to it. Keep constantly stirring the sooji while adding to the pan, to avoid forming any lumps. Cover and cook on low flame until the sooji is cooked. Turn off the stove.
* Serve warm with chutney or a dash of lime/lemon juice if desired.

Missed your posts Suma...welcome back! Btw, have you also added groundnuts in the tadka? I think I'll love this! My rice upma often clumps up. Yours looks nice and fluffed up!
