Uggani / Puffed Rice(Borugulu) upma

Uggani is a famous dish in my native Anantapur. We make it for breakfast. Mirchi bajji is a must side dish for uggani. Whenever i think of food, i miss my home very much. Back there we can have the luxury of just going out and eating whatever we like. Thats the thing we cant find here whatever else we have...


1 big bowl Borugulu (Puffed rice)
1 Onion (chopped lengthwise)
1 Tomato (finely chopped)
3 Chillies(chopped lengthwise)
5tbsp Chickpeas
3tbsp Coconut powder
1/2 tbsp Red chilli powder
1/2 a lime


Mustard Seeds
Cumin Seeds
Curry Leaves
Chana dal

1. Soak puffed rice in water for about 5 minutes. Then squeeze all the water out and keep them another bowl.

2. Do the seasoning in a large pan. Add onions and green chillies. when onions are soft, add tomato and turmeric. Now add puffed rice, mix well.

3. Grind chickpeas, coconut powder and red chilli powder together into a fine powder. Add it along with salt and mix well. Simmer it for few minutes.
