MOR KALI (RICE RAVA UPMA WITH BUTTER MILK)

Mor kali a perfect break fast for summer, and a very famous Tamil nadu break fast variety that can made with in a jiffy.Normally people make this with rice flour but this time I change that to very fine rice rava.For this rice rava just soak rice for 1 hour and drain the water and dry them in the shade and grind this rice in to a fine rava in a mixee or coffee grinder and here is the mor kali recipe....

INGREDIENTS:----
Very fine Rice rava --- 1 cup
Sour butter milk --- 3 cup
Oil --- 2 tab sp
mustard seeds --- 1/2 tea sp
Urad dal ---- 1 tab sp
Channa dal --- 1 tab sp
Chillies cured in yogurt(majjiga mirapakayalu or mor milagai) or red chilies --- 3
Asafoetida --- a pinch
salt to taste
curry leaves a few
METHOD:--
1. Heat oil in a pan or a pressure cooker add mustard seeds let them popup then add urad dal,channa dal,curd chilies(or) dry red chilies and curry leaves and asafoetida let them fry till light brown.
2. Now add butter milk, salt to taste mix well and bring to a boil then add rice rava mix well cover and cook till done.(stir in between)
3. If you are using pressure cooker then heat oil add mustard seeds let them popup then add all other seasoning ingredients then add butter milk, salt to taste and bring to a boil then add rice rava mix well and cover with the lid and cook for 2 whistles.
4. Remove from the heat and let it cool,mix well and serve with any pickle.

Using buttermilk in upma is new to me.. never tried it before. Your dish sounds simple and delicious. You can probably send this to Sahaja (spicyrasam.wordpress.com) for her Single serve event.
