Uppindi is a traditional recipe from Andhrapradesh..This is prepared with coarsely ground rice also called biyyam rava. This doesn't taste like regular upma but a little different and awesome in taste.My kids love to have this any time. I used to have uppindi during my childhood days when amma prepared at home.I keep watching all the time when amma was cooking  uppindi...Atleast once in a week we used to have uppindi.

                       Now a days  my kids demanding me to cook this for breakfast.Ofcourse worth the time and effort spend on this recipe. Whenever summer comes I sun dry rice and store rava for later use.when I ask choice between uppindi and dosa for my kids they always choose uppindi...Now coming to the recipe I thought of posting this recipe in BM#55 under the theme  kids delight healthy breakfast recipes.


  • Rice rava 1 cup (sun dried rice grinded)
  • Moong dal 2 tbspns
  • Red chillies 3small
  • Onion 1 chopped
  • Ginger 2 to 3 small pieces chopped
  • Curry leaves 2 strings
  • oil 2 tbspns
  • salt to taste

  • wash raw rice with water,drain it and keep it in sun light  for one day.
  • Later grind rice into coarse powder  and separate flour from rava( I just seive )
  • Store the rice in a jar or container.We can use whenever we want to make uppindi.
  • Usually I dry more cups of rice and store it .
  • Procedure:
  • Heat oil in a pan,add mustard seeds,when splutters add chopped onions,ginger redchillies curry leaves.
  • when onions enough fried( should be roasted well) add moong dal( key ingredient) fry well few more mins
  • Now add Rice rava which is sun dried and fry few more mins.
  • Add 2 cups of water and salt, and let it boil few mins( 3 to 4 mins) in medium to high flame,when the water completely absorbs rava,reduce flame to low and cover the pan with a tight lid.
  • Let it cook around 20 mins your uppindi is ready( you can see bottom slighlty roasted and uppindi almost cooked,we love the roasted part)
  • Yummy uppindi is ready..This our favorite breakfast for the whole family.Kids love it more than dosas.worth the time and effort spent on this recipe.
  • Enjoy uppindi just like that or have it with potato curry)
