Coconut Upma

Ingredients to make Coconut Upma

  • Raw rice 1 cup
  • coconut 1/2 cup
  • Red Chillies 5
  • coriander Seeds 1/2 tbsp
  • tamarind gooseberry sized
  • jaggery 1/2 tsp
  • oil 3 tbsp
  • salt to Taste
  • mustard seeds 1 tsp
  • Red Chillies 2

How to make Coconut Upma

  1. Clean and wash raw rice. Soak it for 1 hour in enough water.
  2. After 1 hour, grind rice, coconut pieces, red chillies, coriander seeds and salt to a smooth paste in a mixer.
  3. To this paste, add tamarind extract and jaggery. Mix well without lumps. Make the mixture watery (similar to rava dosa batter).
  4. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan. Temper mustard seeds and red chillies.
  5. Lower the flame and add the ground mixture slowly.
  6. Keep stirring often and add remaining oil in stages. The mixture starts to come together and solidifies.
  7. When the whole mass changes to a light golden colour and tastes cooked, switch off the flame.
  8. Garnish with finely chopped onions.

My Tip:

It is very important to make the mixture watery with enough water.
