Puli (ogere) upama !.....

When I was bored off regular upama, I tried this simple item...

Ingrediants :

1. 1 cup Semolina of wheat/Sooji (Hindi)/Rava (Kannada);
2. 2-3 tbl spn puliogere powder (MTR);
3. 1/2 tea spn chilli powder
4. 1/2 tea spn mustard seeds
5. 1 tbl spn peanuts
6. 4-5 curry leaves
7. 2 tbl spn oil and salt to taste.

Procedure :

Take one cup of semolina and fry it with two tablespoons of butter/oil until you get nice aroma. Add this fried sooji to two cup water (separate vessel with stirring to avoid formation of lumps) for 5- 7 min.  Allow it to cool.

In a separate vessel, heat oil  add mustard seeds, peanuts when they are fried, add curry leaves followed by chilli powder, puliyogare powder and salt to taste. Keep frying for 2-3 mints on a low flame.

Add the boiled sooji, mix thoroughly on a low flame and serve hot...
(Puli means sour taste; Ogara means rice in Halegannada !)
