Mor Upuma with Lemon pickle


Rava (samolina) 1 cup (American)
Buttermilk 500 ml (150 ml extra if needed)
Onions 1/2 cup chopped /in small pieces
Green Chilies 4 to 5 finelly chopped
Gingergrated/finely chopped 1.5" piece
Fresh chopped cilantro/coriander leaves 2 Tbsp
Salt to taste
Lemon Juice (optional) 1/2 to 1 spoon


Blackgram dal 1 spoon
Mustard seeds 1/2 spoon
Red Chilies 1 to 2 (broken in half)
Curry leaves 1 to 2 sprigs
Cashewnuts 5 to 6 nos( Broken )
Ghee/oil 3 ladlefuls(1.5 to 2 oz)


chop onions, Cut and chop cilantro/Coriander/Grate Ginger and slice Green Chilies in thin rounds and set aside . Now take oil/Ghee in a kadai/steel pan and when hot, add Both the Dals and Mustard and Red chillies. When Mustard starts crackling, immediately add diced Onions and Sprigs of Curry leaves,sliced green chillies and start turning. When onion becomes translucent, add Rava in Kadai and fry for about two to 3 minutes on a low to medium flame. Keep on turning the Rava . At this stage, add chopped Ginger and fry for 45 seconds. Now add sour butter milk and desired quantity of salt to fried ingredients in the the Kadai/pan. Take care that the Samolina Lumps are not formed. You must add the Buttermilk very slowly and must keep on stirring the mix. Let the whole mix simmer on a low flame. Keep some more warm buttermilk on hand in case you feel that the it is less and the Upuma becomes thick. When the the buttermilk is completely absorbed and Rava particles are fully cooked, remove from stove and you may Garnish Mor Upuma with chopped cilantro and fried Cashewnuts.

As an accompaniment, you can prepare coconut chutney or serve with Avakkai pickle or Lemon pickle. Adding Lemon Juice is optional. Some people do not like very sour Uppuma. So use your judgement.

This variation of Upuma tastes totally different. Try and you are sure to be surprised with a wonderful tasty breakfast.
