Udupi Uppittu / Upma

A unique Upma / uppittu recipe from Udupi is Udupi Uppittu. This is made with Bombay Rava and a little coconut oil is added to provide this unique flavor. This has a distinctively different taste from usual Upma that you might have relished. Also ensure that you add minced ginger (for any Upma) and not grated ginger. This way you can feel light crunchiness and light flavor and aroma of ginger when you relish this.

1.  Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard. When it starts to splutter, add Urad dal and Channa Dal and do the seasoning.
2.  To the seasoning, add slit green chilli, minced ginger, curry leaves and roast for a few seconds.
3.  Now add rava and Cashewnut and roast on medium flame till it turns light golden color.
4.  Meanwhile boil 2 – 2 ¼ cups of water and keep ready.
5.  Pour the water as soon as Rava is roasted. Give a quick mix. See that no lumps are formed. Add salt, sugar, grated coconut, lemon juice to the boiling mixture.
6.  Turn heat on high (high flame) for a minute and stir again. At this point add ghee or coconut oil (if you are adding any of these – I recommend as this provides unique flavor and taste to the Udupi Uppittu J .. especially coconut oil )
7.  Cover the pan with lid and lower the flame and cook till Upma is done (3-5 minutes).
8.  Garnish with coriander leaves and serve.
