Total Time30 mins
- 1 cup Wheat rava roasted
- 1 Onion
- 4 Green chilli
- 2 tbsp Chopped carrot
- 2 tbsp green peas
- 3 cups Water Use 2 & 1/2 cups for fluffy upma
- Salt – As needed
- 1/2 tsp Mustard
- 1 tsp Urad dal
- 2 tsp Chana dal
- 2 tbsp Oil
- 1 sprig Curry leaves
First fry the rava in medium flame for 2 minutes with a tsp of oil if its not roasted rava. This is optional too, I don't roast, still love the aroma.
Heat the kadai/pan with oil and temper with mustard (should splutter),urad dal,chana dal. Let dal turn golden crisp.
Add the curry leaves followed by slit green chillies, chopped onion and fry till onion just turns transparent.
Add the veggies and fry for two minutes in medium low flame. Pour water, bring to boil.
After it boils, add the wheat rava little by little in a sprinkled way. Stir well.
Add salt and let it boil in high flame until the water content reduces and the mixture turns like porridge consistency.
Now simmer the flame to low and cook covered for 10 minutes or till all the water is absorbed and you get a soft upma.
You can add a tsp of coconut oil at end for a unique flavour
Adding a tsp of coconut oil or ghee towards the end enhances the flavour. I used frozen peas. You can use fresh. You can make without veggies, but adds nutrition. If you want fluffy upma, you can add 2 & 1/2 cup water alone. You can add a tsp of finely chopped ginger, asafoetida along with green chilli.
