Uppu Pindi/Rice Rawa Upma

Uppu Pindi
Uppu pindi orrice rawa upma is a traditional Andhra dish. It is taken instead of rice in the dinner time. It is made with the broken rice or rice rawa. Earlier days rice rawa was not available in the stores but now a days it is available. If it is not available in the stores also there is no problem we can make it very easily. Just soak rice for four to five hours. Drain water and dry it in the shade for one hour. Grind it to a coarsely like suji/semolina. As we get store bought rice rawa, it is better to use it.
