Upma is one of the most easiest breakfast and can be done in a jiffy. Though I have posted many types of upma including vegetable rava upma, I realized that I did not post the most basic upma recipe (without any vegetables). Since it is a very basic recipe, I have given step wise pictures to make it easier for beginners. Today we will learn how to make rava upma following this easy recipe.
|Rava Upma-Coconut chutney-Orange juice with honey-Comforting breakfast|
Prep time -under 5 mins
Cook time -under 15 mins
Rava /semolina/sooji (any type of rava) - 1 cup
Onion - 1
Green chilli -1
Ginger - 1 inch piece finely chopped
Water - 2 cups
Ghee - 3/4 tsp (optional - added for flavor)
For the seasoning
Oil - 3 tsp
Mustard seeds -1 tsp
Urad dal - 3/4 tsp
Red chillies -1
Curry leaves - few
Dry roast rava until it is hot to touch. If you have got ready made roasted rava, you can skip this step.
Chop onions, ginger and green chillies finely.
Heat 3 tsp of oil, add mustard seeds, when it splutters, add urad dal, red chillies and curry leaves.
When dal turns golden brown, add chopped onions, green chillies and ginger.
Saute until onions turn transparent.
Then add 2 cups of water, ghee and salt needed. Taste the water and check for salt.(if it is a bit salty, then it will become perfect after adding rava).
When the water starts boiling, reduce the flame to low, add rava gradually with one hand and keep stirring with your other hand.
Once the rava absorbs all the water, cover and cook on low flame for 6-7 minutes. Do not forget to stir in between.
Delicious rava upma is ready to be served. It can be paired with Tomato chutney, coconut chutney, sambar or any pickle.
