Rawa Upma with Yogurt

29 May

Challa Pindi


Rice Rawa 1 cup
Onion 1
Green Chiles 3
Plain Yogurt 1 cup
Turmeric Powder a big pinch
Salt to taste


Urad Dal 1 tsp
Mustard Seeds 1 tsp
Cumin Seeds 1 tsp
Whole Dried Red Chiles 4
Curry Leaves 4 – 6
Asafoetida a pinch
Oil 1 tbsp

Method of preparation:

Peel and slice the onion.
Remove stems, wash and slit the green chiles.
Whisk yogurt, turmeric powder and salt together with a cup of water.

Heat oil in a deep pan, add all talimpu ingredients in order.
When dal changes color, add green chiles and sliced onion.
When onion turns translucent, pour whisked yogurt.
Bring the yogurt mixture to boil and then add rice rawa.
Mix thoroughly and simmer for about 8 – 10 minutes or until rawa is completely cooked.
If upma tastes raw, sprinkle few tbsps of water and cook covered until done.
Serve hot with chutney or pickle.

Notes: To make rice rawa, grind the raw rice in a spice grinder for 6 – 8 seconds. Beware not to powder the rice completely. This onion upma tastes best if yogurt is little sour.

    this is nice and new… until now used ready made rawa bought from the market and sometimes it so happened that I had to think of an alternate dish when Rawa was not in the kitchen. But now no issues anytime anywhere I will be able to make upma ….. as in today’s time all houses would have rice and a mixer grinder ….. Thanks
