Arisi upma is made with raw rice and dal, we make it with toor dal (thuvaram paruppu) but I have seen people make with channa dal and moong dal too. Very easy and simple recipe and one pot meal if you are looking for a filling breakfast or dinner. We make another version which is an easier one with arisi noi (broken rice) It has no dal other than tempering. I have posted it how to make rice upma in rice cooker earlier. But wanted to post this authentic version my family makes for long time. I knew many of my readers search as arisi upma raks kitchen too. For past few months, I am making this version often and thought making a post. My mom used to make it in vengala paanai, which will lend you a golden crisp adai in the bottom. It will be so delicious and I miss it. Next time I am going to bring a vengala panai sure for making pongal and this upma mainly .
Serve with coconut thogayal the best combination for rice upma. I eat as such or with sugar too.
