Arisi upma aka idli rava aka cream of rice, is a coarsely powdered rice of a particular variety that is used to make idlis, a South Indian delicacy. I didn't know about the existence of such a thing until we were invited to a relative's place for dinner. She had cooked these amazingly light, yummy kozhakkattai (steamed rice balls) and even though there were other dishes in the menu, I had just these for dinner. The picture is from her table since I don't see myself making this any time soon. TH is averse to anything steamed, unfried and healthy, of course!
