Raw Rice Upma : 10 minute breakfast ideas

I always search for easy and fast recipes. This is the one which we can try out at any time and have it as breakfast, main course, snack or at dinner. Most attractive factor is that , it doesn't need any pre-preparation time , like to soak or grind anything. all is to wash and cook. So enjoy Wash rice thoroughly,strain and keep aside. its better to crush it to half in a mixie. Take a pan, add oil, crack mustard, urad, chilly and curry leaves Add onion, green chillies and ginger.. saute Add broken rice and salt. Mix well Add water, cover the lid and let it cook for 7 minutes. Water will be completely absorbed by rice. Now add grated coconut. Mix well. Its ready to have... can have it alone Or with non veg sides. I love it with sugar ;) ;)
