Rice Rava Upma

Another post to another event. Divya is hosting this month's Tried and Tasted.

Tried and Tasted was originally started by Zlamushka. Every month, the host chooses one blog and the participant has to cook any recipe from the blog to enter.

Divya has chosen Raaga for this month. I was amazed how simple yet tasty her recipes seemed. And I wasn't disappointed when I chose her Arisi Upma. It was extremely simple but very tasty.

I like onions in my upma. So here's my version of the recipe (Its the same. I just added onions)

1.5 cups rice rava /idli rava
3.5 cups of water
1 onion - chopped
2 green chillies - slit
2 red chillies
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp chana dal
1 tsp urad dal
1/2 tsp asafoetida (hing)
1/2 tsp ginger paste
10 - 15 curry leaves
2 tbsp oil
salt to taste
coriander leaves for garnish

  1. Heat oil in a pan.
  2. When hot, add the chana dal and urad dal.
  3. When the dal changes colour, add the mustard seeds and asafetida.
  4. When the mustard seeds splutter, add the green and red chillies and fry for a min.
  5. Now add the curry leaves and the ginger paste and fry for 2 mins.
  6. Add the onions and fry till translucent.
  7. Now add the rava and fry for 4 - 5 mins.
  8. Add the water and bring to boil on med - high.
  9. Reduce heat and let cook.
  10. When the upma is not sticky, its done.
