Avare Kaalu Uppittu - Version 1

Uppittu or uppumavu is a well esteemed snack item in old Mysore side. There are several types of uppittu. During the Avare Kaalu(Lilva Beans) season which is incidentally running now, they make Avare Kaalu bansi rave uppittu and Avare Kaalu akki rave uppittu. Bansi rave is broken wheat rava and akki rave is rice rava. Both the versions are tasty and easy on the gastronomy.

I am sharing the method, how to make Avare Kaalu bansi rave uppittu the way we make it.

Broken wheat Rava - 1 cup
Boiled Avare Kaalu - 1 cup
Refined oil/Ghee - 2 Tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1 Tsp
Urad daal - 1 Tsp
Chana daal(Optional) - 1 Tsp
Cashew bits(Optional) - 1 Tsp
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Green chillies - 2-3 chopped
Onion - 1 chopped
Sugar - 1 Tsp
Salt - To taste
Water - 3 Cups
Lemon - 1/2
Grated coconut(Optional) - 1/2 cup
Coriander leaves(Optional) - A handful chopped


In a thick bottomed kadai, prepare a seasoning with mustard seeds, urad and chana daal in hot oil.
Add cashew bits, curry leaves and green chillies and fry till the chilli bits are dry. Add chopped onion and fry till transparent.
Add the boiled avare kaalu, little salt and fry till they start to crackle.
Add water, bring to a boil, squeeze lemon, add salt to taste and sugar followed by bansi rava. Cover a dome lid and cook for 2-3 minutes on medium heat. Keep mixing gently.
When the rava has almost cooked, remove the kadai from fire and keep aside uncovered.
Sprinkle coriander greens, grated coconut and allow to stay for another 5 mins.
Mix well and serve hot.
