PULI UPMA

Hi friends, Sorry for not visiting your blogs for the past 2 weeks.We went to india for a family function and had a very good time there and came back 2 days back. Now things have come to a routine.

Coming to the recipe, this upma is my all time favourite.whenever i visit my mom’s place i ask her to make this for breakfast. even when she visited here last time,most of the days she made this for me. But though it is my favourite, i never attempted to make this. Still dont know why!!. Yesterday i thought of attempting this on my own.Came out very well.

Just wanted to share the recipe with u all.Simple and easy one made with rice flour and tamarind water.

  • When it is cooked, sprinkle a few drops of water to it .
  • Mix it well and switch off the flame.
  • Serve hot with SUTTA APPLAM.(Pappad roasted on open flame or can be microwaved too)

I personally love to eat this with sugar smeared on the top of it and with papad.

    1. Deepa it will take time and you have to break the lumps with the ladle . Good exercise for hands!!. But for all the pain we take in making it will taste awesome

  31. Hi Jeyashri, one tip on this pulima upma which i got from my sister. First fry the rice flour in pan for 2 mins without oil and then mix with tamarind water, it will not be so tough to mix and the upma comes very soft. I tried and it came yummy :)...

  33. Hi Jeyashri,
    stumbled onto your blog while searching for badam burfi recipe; lovely blog and photos, you're doing a great job! Little tip: this upma can also be made with just curd or buttermilk, and this version is my all-time favourite.. on reading this I realized it's been such a long time since I made it! My mom used to call it 'pachamapodi upma', andit is an oily version of morekoozhu. BTW, the badam barfi turned out great, thanks.
