Microwave Pori Upma


Today is my first day for Blogging Marathon #8 by Srivalli. I have chosen the theme Microwave cooking
Ever since my daughter joined college , its sort of chaos in the early morning at home. She needs to have her breakfast and lunch ready by early morning and You can understand the chaos.....:-) well......But with my wonder machine ..MICROWAVE....all is not that bad. Can prepare some on the dishes in less time and with much less effort too!!.


Pori/Puffed rice 1 cup

Onion 1 cut finely

Green chillies 2 cut

Roasted gram dhal/ Pottukadalai 3 tbsp

Mustard seeds 1 tsp

Black gram dhal 1 tsp

Turmeric powder 1/4 tsp

Oil 1 tbsp

Coriander 2 tbsp

Salt to taste


Soak the puffed rice in enough water for 10 minutes.Squeeze it and keep it in a bowl/plate.

Grind the roasted gram dhal into a very fine powder

Cut the onion and chillies finely

In a microwave safe bowl, heat the oil for 1 minute in high mode

Now add the mustard seeds and black gram dhal to this. Mix well with a dry spoon. Heat it for another minute in the high mode for the mustard to splutter

Now add the turmeric powder,
onion and chillies, mix well. Heat it again for 2 minutes in high mode. At the end of 2 minutes, the onion would have fried well.

Now put the squeezed puffed rice and salt. Mix well. Cook it on High mode for 2 minutes

Mix in the Roasted gram powder. Put the cut coriander. Mix well. Cook for 1 minute

Pori upma ready in 7 minutes with not much effort.
