ARISI UPMA RECIPE | HOW TO MAKE ARISI UPMA

Arisi upma recipe

Arisi  upma is  a very simple dish yet a traditional tamil brahmin recipe. We usually make this on fasting days like ekadesi, ammavasai and on other days we fast. Traditionally, arisi upma is made in a brass vessel,we call it “uruli” in tamil. Both my mom and Mother in law makes this upma in that vessel. Since i don't have this , i always make this in pressure cooker.
Let me share the recipe of this Arisi upma this time.


Arisi upma recipe

  Preparation Time : 15 mins | Cooking Time : 25 Mins |Serves: 3-4

     Raw rice | Pacharisi 1 and 1/2 cup 
     Toor dal   3 tblsp
     Cumin seeds | jeeragam   1 tsp
     Pepper   1/2 tsp
     Red chili  1
     Curry leaves   few
     Cooking oil    1 tblsp
     Coconut oil   2 tsp
     Coconut    2 tblsp (optional)
     Asafoetida   2 pinches
     Mustard seeds    1/4 tsp
     Salt as needed
     Curry  leaves   few
     


Method:
  • Wash the rice and drain all the water.
  • Dry it in a cloth ,by spreading the rice in the cloth.

  • This procedure helps in breaking of the rice evenly without making it a powder.
  • When it is dry,transfer it to the mixie.
  • Just coarsely grind it in the mixie along with the toordhal,cuminseeds and pepper.
  • The consistency should be like this.
  • We call this as arisi kurunnai.
HOW TO MAKE ARISI UPMA
  • In a pressure cooker, add the cooking oil and coconut oil .
  • Add mustard seeds, asafoetida,curry leaves and redchilli to it.

  • When half of the upma is done, close the cooker with the lid.
  • Keep it in a low flame and cook for 10-12 mins .
  • In this time we will get one whistle from the cooker.

NOTE:
  1. This recipe is usually done with raw rice,but if u dont get it,u can use parboiled rice too.(not the idli rice).
  2. You can also replace arisi kurrunai available in the store,so that u can skip the first 2 steps.
  3. If you have a ricemill, in the place u live,u can grind a sizable quantity and store it .

  34. Thanks for recipe. All the times that I made earlier it would either be too mushy or dry. But this time the tase was perfect. Thanks to your detailed recipe. The part where I was going wrong was the last step.

  35. Thank you for the detailed recipe with pics. All the times that I made this earlier it would either be mushy or dry. Never the right consistency. But this time I followed your recipe and half cooked it then pressure cooked it in low for one whistle. It came out perfect and tasted like my mom's :) thanks again!!
