Podi Ari Upma| Broken Matta Rice Upma

On our recent trip to Wayanad, I picked up a bag of broken matta rice at a departmental store, so I could get home and try it out. Following an online recipe, with a few variations of my own, I used the broken matta rice to make vegetable upma in a pressure cooker, which turned out absolutely delicious! The upma was a delight, especially when eaten warm! Mildly spiced, lovely in taste, and a breeze to cook, the upma – known in Kerala as Podi Ari Upma – was a huge hit at home.

One Morning, In Wayanad

Since long, the husband and I had been craving for a vacation where we did absolutely nothing.

As we got a chance, recently, off we took to Wayanad, to stay in one of the many homestays there. To just be, and do nothing else.

It’s a different story that the bub didn’t let us just be at the homestay, and we had to head out for some sightseeing just to keep her entertained – not that we didn’t have fun in the process. đŸ˜›

Another story is that the drive back home to Bangalore from Wayanad took us 12 hours – the double of what it takes usually – thanks to crazy traffic. We ended up more exhausted than ever, but still, I am glad we managed to see a new place.

My first post about our trip to Wayanad is up on my photo blog. Walk through a home plantation with me, here!
