Vegetable Upma

Vegetable Upma is the simplest breakfast recipe I have ever heard of.There are many people who I know have an aversion to it. But believe me, if you make it with the right consistency and taste, there is no other healthier breakfast dish which you would love, than this.


1 cup Rava/sooji
Green chillies-4
Chana dal-1 tspn
Coriander leaves-For garnishing
Curry leaves
Oil-2 tspns


Cut all the vegetables finely.
Dry roast rava in a kadai for about 4 minutes on medium flame. It should not get burnt. You may take a pinch of rava and check if its hot.That is the time to switch off the flame.
Transfer this roasted rava onto a plate.
Heat oil in the kadai. Add mustard to it.Once it splutters, add chana dal, green chillies(finely chopped) and curry leaves and fry a little.Add onion and fry till its transparent.Now add tomato, potato and carrot and fry for 2 minutes.Now add water.(For 1 cup of rava, add 2 cups of water).Add salt.
Once it starts boiling, turn the flame to low and slowly add the roasted rava/sooji to this water, continuously stirring it.
Keep stirring for a minute or so till the water is absorbed and the upma becomes a single layer without sticking to the sides of the pan.

Now switch off the flame and garnish with coriander leaves. Serve hot and healthy upma with any chutney or sambar.I bet you, it even tastes good with sugar.
