Wheat Rava Upma

When I am bored of having the usual idli or dosa for breakfast, I turn to upma for a change.It is so easy to prepare and in granny's words this is South-Indian fast food!

You need:
Wheat Rava - 1 cup
Vegetables - peas,carrot,potato,cabbage[purple/green] - finely chopped and parboiled
Onion - 2 chopped
Tomato - 1,chopped
Ginger - a small pice ,finely chopped
Green chillies - 3,chopped/slit
Curry leaves - a few
Salt - to taste
Oil- 2 tablespoons
Cashew/roasted groundnuts
Water - 2 cups

Mustard-1 teaspoon
Urad dhal - 1 teaspoon
Gram dhal -1 teaspoons
  1. Heat oil in a pan.
  2. Fry cashews and keep aside.
  3. Add seasoning to the same oil and when it turns brown add ginger, green chillies,curry leaves ,onion and fry till onions turn brown.
  4. Stir in tomatoes and add water,salt.The water:rava ratio changes with the brand.I use 2 cups water for 1 cup rava.
  5. When it boils add the veggies and wheat rawa and keep stirring.
  6. When it is cooked and the water is all absorbed remove from heat.
  7. If you like a tangy upma ,add the juice of half a lime after removing it from heat.
  8. Serve hot with sambar / coconut chutney.

Bon Appetit...
