Our classic aromatics like ginger, green chillies and small onions are sauted well in the  kadai and the ground rava is cooked. After adding the ground rava to the boiling water you should not stir it immediately as we do it for rava upma. The rava must be cooked well and then we must stir it well. You can see more details in the step by step instructions. In the end, a handful of fresh coconut adds a very good taste to this upma. I suggest to prepare this upma in a iron kadai or indolium aluminium kadai with a good amount of gingely oil and coconut oil and you can enjoy the thin flimy layer which sticks in the kadai. When you have free time grind the rice and prepare the rava so that you can prepare this upma within 10 minutes on weeknights. Upma always requires minimum ingredients and very less preparation work. I hope this healthy Arisi upma will save your time on busy weeknight dinner. This arisi upma is such a dish with ingredients that are easily accessible. Now let's see how to prepare this upma.
