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 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.



  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!!!



Arisi/Rice Upma :

Here's picture of broken rice,its available in grocery stores....



Broken rice 1 cup
Water 2 ,1/4 cups
Salt As needed

To Temper:

Mustard 1 tsp
Urad dal 1 tsp

Asafetida 1/4 tsp

Curry leaves 1 sprig
Oil 2 tblsp


  1. Wash the rice and add the required water and salt in the electric rice cooker and mix well.
  2. Also temper  with items  in the "To Temper" table...mix well
