Today I have served this with Coconut Spice Powder (Kobbari Kaaram). That made one filling healthy savory breakfast on our table this morning. :-)

How To make Broken Rice (Biyyapu Ravva):  Wash 2 cups of rice and soak in water for 30 minutes.  Drain the water and dry them in the sun. And grind this dried rice coarsely in the mixie or grinder. You can make this broken rice ahead and store it in the cool place. You can make upma or pulihora with this.


  • As this recipe includes Moong Dal and Coconut, definitely considered as healthy compared to your sooji rava upma and best for your kiddos.
  • The advantage of broken rice over normal rice is it gets cooked fast because of it's granules texture.
  • This recipe yields 4 servings for adults.
