Arisi upma an all time favourite food from childhood. It reminds me  of the cheku (golden brown layer formed in the bottom of the vessel when upma is made) brought by my mom in a plate for us to taste even before the upma could get ready and we used to fight for a bigger and crispier piece. As the name goes it is easy to cook with simple ingredients yet tasty. The recipe goes below.
