Barnyard Millet  - 3/4  cup.
Raw Rice - 1/4 cup.
coconut - 1/4 cup.
Green chillies - 5.
Sour curd - 3/4 cup.
chana dal - 2  tbsp. 
salt -to taste

To Temper 

Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp.

urad dal - 1/2 tsp.
curry leaves - 1 sprig.

  • Soak  Barnyard Millet & raw rice   for  1 hr.
  • Soak seperately,  1 tbsp of chanadal with needed water for 1  hrs, till dal is soft.(optional).

  • To the Soaked Rice, add Green chillies,coconut,salt and grind the content by adding curd little by little   & make little coarse  batter.(Add the remaining curd to ground mixture, I have added 1 more cup water to  the  ground batter to make little thin batter ) The consistency should be  little thin than Normal Dosa batter consistency,Not too thinner or thicker.

  • Add the soaked chana dal to the batter and mix well. 
      • Heat the oil add mustard seeds , when it crackles,add urad dal, then add curry leaves. 
      • When dal's, turns golden brown colour, add the batter.

      • Stir the batter,now and then  till it is well cooked and comes in the form  of upma consistency, as shown in the picture.Cook in  medium low flame. cook it covered.

      • Dough  should be cooked until ,it is  is not sticky to mouth.(it takes nearly 20 -  25 minutes to cook.) 
      • Adding chanadal is optional, if u forgot to soak, just temper it, while tempering.
      • The consistency of batter should be little thinner than, dosa batter consistency. if it is thick, it won't get cooked, else if it is too thin, it takes much time to cook.
      • Always choose sour curd for Good taste & also Grind the batter little coarsely.
      • Cook in medium low flame.cook it covered,stir now & then till it is cooked & not sticky to mouth.

      This is an interesting variation to the upma. Never grinded the ingredients. Very nice.
