Puffed Rice Upma Recipe | Uggani Recipe

       Puffed Rice Upma  a filling and yummy breakfast of north Karnataka. 'Pori' we call in Tamil is made by puffing the rice in steam over a sand filled oven. It is considered to be healthy with iron content. This can be  a snack as is while they are crunchy along with roasted gram,roasted coconut,some sweet candies and sure is healthy and filling  for kids and adults.Even I make kara pori and pori urundai with mandakki(called in north karnataka and andhra).

       But I am skeptical to know it can make a filling breakfast.Uggani (they call it) is pori upma and it has an entirely different taste ,very filling and really delicious snack. Uggani is actually paired with mirch bajji in the state of north karnataka. Usually, we all know about the breakfast our mom makes and after marriage from the mother -in- law. So I never had a chance to know about this beauty until I ate at my friend's house.This one stole my heart recently.She prepared it for kids snack and gave it to me for tasting.I was really full so was thinking of having just one spoon .But I keep eating until I finished the whole cup(hehe).

      I wanted to try it immediately . I was off for some time so I keep postponing. Now it's the right time so I made it a few days ago. My little one really liked this very much.
   I added some vegetables also to this uggani. You can skip the veggies if you are in a hurry or you don't have the patience to chop them. Instead, add only peanuts
