Colorful Upma Kozhukattai

Colorful_Upma_Kozhukattai_1 Upma Kozhukattai tastes somewhat similar to Rice Rava Upma. This is partially cooked with less oil and then steamed.

I have added some carrot, curry leaves and coriander leaves to make it colorful and healthy.

Ingredients

  • Rice rava – 1 cup (here is How to Prepare Rice Rava ?)
  • Grated carrot – 3 table spoon
  • Chopped coconut – 2 table spoon
  • Curry and coriander leaves – few
  • Salt – as per taste
  • Water – 2 cup
  • For seasoning
    • Mustard – ½ tea spoon
    • Urad dal – 1 tea spoon
    • Bengal gram – 1 tea spoon
    • Red chilli – 2 no
    • Asafetida powder – pinch
    • Oil – 1 table spoon

  • Make small balls (little bigger than the size of a lemon) from this dough; steam cook it for 6 to 8 minutes.

Tips

  • Quantity of water may have to be little reduced, if rice rava is prepared with newly harvested rice.
