Semolina Upma (Breakfast) --- made on 1st April, 2012

What did I use:

  1. Rava / Sooji / Semolina ~ 1 Cup
  2. Grated carrot ~ 1/2 cup
  3. Chopped Beans ~ 1/4 cup ( Very small pieces )
  4. Chopped Onions ~ 1/2 cup
  5. Ginger ~ 1/2 tbsp
  6. Garlic ~ 1/2 tbsp
  7. Green chillies ~ 2 Nos
  8. Turmeric powder ~ 3 pinch
  9. Hot water ~ 1 cup
  10. Urad Dal (Uzhunnu ) ~ 1 tbsp
  11. Curry leaves ~ 4-5 leaves
  12. Mustard seeds
  13. Dry Red chillies ~ 2 Nos
  14. Oil
  15. Salt

How did I cook:

  • Roast Rava / Sooji in a pan without adding oil in medium flame till it become slightly brown in color. (Note : If you are buying roasted Rava / Sooji from the grocery shop, then you can skip this step)
  • Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds. When the mustard seeds crackle add dry red chillies (2 pcs) and curry leaves. Then add Urad Dal and fry till it becomes light brown in color. 
  • And then add chopped onions, chopped ginger, chopped garlic and chopped green chillies. Saute it till onions become soft. Then add chopped vegetables. And fry it for another 5-10 minutes. 
  • Then add 1 cup of hot water along with salt and turmeric powder and bring it to a boil.
  • Then lower the flame and add Rava / Sooji and immediately mix it nicely in order to avoid the formation of lumps. Continue stirring for almost 1 minute or until almost all water is absorbed by the Rava / Sooji. And then remove from the flame.
  • Garnish with chopped coriander leaves (Optional)
