Rava Upma

Monday, May 17, 2010
I used to hate upma when i was small. But now i don't know why i love this :).Especially the one my mom makes..After many attempts i got this one close to my mom's(finally!!)

So here's how it is done..

You will need :

Rava/Sooji - 1cup    Water - 2 cups (ratio sooji : water = 1 : 2)
Onions - 1 big sliced
Green Chillies - 5-6 big ones sliced
Ginger - about 1inch finely chopped
Mustard Seeds - 1tsp
Cumin seeds - 1tsp
Chana Dal - 1tbsp
Curry Leaves
Cashewnuts - few roasted in oil/ghee(optional)

You will have to do :

1. Dry roast the sooji on a medium flame till the raw smell is gone(Don't burn it) and keep it aside.
2. In a kadai heat oil and fry the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, ginger, channa dal, curry leaves and hing.
3. Add the cashewnuts, green chillies and onions and fry (they don't have to turn golden brown).
4. Add water and let it boil.
5. Add sooji and stir well so that no lumps are formed.
6. Let it cook on a low flame for about 10 min with the lid on.
7. Garnish with cilantro.

And here it is..

Enjoy it hot with tamarind pickle or tomato pickle..It should taste awesome :)
