  • 4 Comments

Uppudu Pindi is another variation of the famous Upma. In Andhra, while some people use rice flour, others use broken rice aka rice rava (pic given below) to make this dish. Nimakkaya, in Telugu stands for lime. As the name suggests, this dish has a slight tangy flavour. I tasted Uppudu Pindi for the first time at my friend’s place. She had used tamarind instead if lime juice. This dish can be served as a breakfast item or an evening snack.

A very easy to prepare dish, you can add chopped vegetables to make it more nutritious. This recipe yields about 4-5 servings.
