Rice Flour Upma

16 Jul

Metthani Challa Pindi


Rice Flour 1 cup
Yogurt 1 cup
Salt to taste
Green Chillies 3


Urad dal 1 tsp
Mustard seeds 1 tsp
Cumin seeds 1 tsp
Broken red chillies 5
Curry leaves 5
Oil 1 tbsp

Method of preparation:

Remove stems, wash and chop green chillies finely.

In a bowl, mix rice flour, yogurt and salt into smooth flowy consistency adding little water if required.

Heat oil in a deep non stick pan on medium low heat, add all talimpu ingredients in order.
When dal turns light brown and seeds start to splutter, add chopped green chillies.
After few seconds add rice flour and yogurt mixture.
Stir continously until the rice flour mixture becomes thick without sticking to the pan.
Serve piping hot.

Notes: This challa pindi has tangy spicy kick to it but doesn’t taste good unless hot.

    I was surprised when my SIL prepared it for the first time at our place. She used water though. An unusual kind of dish.

    This one is my absolute favourite. Mom makes it with buttermilk-cured sun-dried chillies. Yum!

    i have never heard of making upma this way anu. i am bit skeptical abt it texture. is adding buttermilk instead of water makes the difference in taste and texture?

    @jyothi let me know how u like it.
    @lata is ur recipe similar?
    @tee i visit that lane too 🙂
    with my grandma preparing it instantaneously and all of us licking the fingers.

    @padmaja do try
    @mythili not really as along as it doesnt stick to the vessel u prepared in.
    @suganya thats cool variation. does she chop them up and fry them in talimpu?

    @sia never added water, adding buttermilk is this dish all about. challa in telugu means buttermilk.
    @lakshmi thx a bunch. do visit again.
