Rice upma using broken rice!

                   My version of arisi upma,is using arisi noi( Means broken rice), is a simpler version which has very few ingredients and can be done in a jiffy! Some days you don't feel like spending more time in cooking right?! That time with very less time spending in kitchen you can do this...That too I use electric rice cooker for this...so it comes out really fluffy!!

                And side dish thengai (coconut) thogaiyal ,is a perfect combo for this!  So here we go for the recipes:

Coconut Thogayal:

coconut-thogayal

Ingredients:

Coconut 3/4  cup
Red chillies 5-6 nos
Tamarind 2 big pinches
Urad dal 2 tblsp
Salt As needed
Water As needed

You can increase the urad dal and decrease coconut accordingly.

Method:

  1. Fry urad dal and red chillies, till golden brown and cool down.
  2. Wet the tamarind in water and microwave in high for 20 - 30 seconds, to make it soft ( gets ground evenly).
  3. First add all the items without water and grind it in the mixer.
  4. Then add the required water and grind to a smooth paste.
  5. Consistency should be thick like thogayal.. This needs no tempering...Don't you think its simple

And this tastes divine with a divine flavour!!!
