How to make UPPINDI - broken rice upma

  2. Heat the oil in a heavy bottomed cooking pot or kadai. For the seasoning or talimpu, add Cumin seeds, Mustard seeds and allow them to crackle. Add Red Chillies (cut them to halves or small pieces), Hing, Curry leaves and stir for a minute.

  6. Cook for 15 minutes on low flame till required consistency.
  7. Serve hot with avakai mango pickle or tomato pickle
  8. STEPS FOR PREPARING RICE RAVA: Wash 1 kg of rice. Drain it with filter. Dry it in the sun for few hours over a bedsheet. Coursely grind to get rava texture. Sieve in a filter to remove powdery residue.

My Tip:

Corn kernels if relished can optionally be added while simmering. For a crispy crust to form, allow it to simmer for a longer time. This will also increase its shelf time.
