Arisi upma or Broken rice upma is a very staple breakfast item in most tamil homes. If you have rice rava handy then its a breeze to make this upma as it gets done in less than 15-20 mins.
I keep rice rava handy and this upma comes to my rescue even as a dinner option when I am pressed for time or run out of options. Serve this upma with coconut chutney,tomato gothsu/ tomato gojju or as is with just a cup of plain curds it tastes heavenly.

I am including the method of making rice rava at home which I normally follow. There are various other process of making rice rava,like soaking the rice,drying it and then pulsing. I use the quick method when I am in a hurry and there is no compromise on taste.

Jain version : Skip the ginger and follow the recipe as is




  Quick Making of Rice Rava at home

Pulse the required quantity of   raw rice /par boiled rice in a mixer grinder . The texture should be slightly coarse and granular as compared to the regular upma rava .

Another very interesting recipe from Kerala made out of slightly sour yogurt ,coconut,green chillies,pepper  a tuber like yam or raw banana . Its slightly sour as compared to avial and also slightly thick compared to Pulissery or Mor Kootan. One of the many dishes served as a part of the Sadhya during Onam,Vishu or any special occassion.
In my recipe,I have made Kaalan using only Raw Banana ,while you can make it with a combination of yam and raw banana as well.
