Talimpu Roti ( Rice & Green Gram Uppittu )

Talimpu Roti ( Rice & Green Gram Uppittu )

This dish is usually made in my household when I am in a real rush or when I hate to cook, this makes a complete meal and hence always comes first when their is time crunch.

Ingredients to be pre made
1 cup of rice soaked in water for 20 min and then dried on towel
1/2 cup of green gram

1. When rice is completely dry, mix green gram and rice and grind in the mixture till it is ground course.
2. This mixture can be stored in an air tight container

Now for Talimpu roti
1 glass of above rice& green gram mixture
2 tbsp ginger finely cut
2 tbsp green chilies finely cut
10-15 curry leaves
1 tbsp urad dal
1 tbsp jeera
1 tbsp mustard seeds
2 glasses water
Salt according to taste

1. In a pan (which later can fit in a pressure cooker) add 1 tbsp of oil, add jeera, urad dal, mustard, G.chilies, ginger and curry leaves
2. Mix till a strong aroma and mustard seeds start to splutter
3. To the above add 2 glasses of water and salt
4. Allow the water to come to a complete boil
5. Add rice and green gram mixture to boil water, mix well
6. Now place this in a pressure cooker and allow for 3 whistles
7. Turn of the pressure cooker and allow cooling
8. Once cooled mix well and add a small tbsp of ghee, it will seem mushy when hot, but when allowed to cool the grains will separate

Enjoy with pickle, it tastes great with yogurt combination too
