QUICK UPMA.

Its breakfast time and here I present u one recipe which all are familiar with the name UPMA. It is quick, easy to cook and healthy to eat. I learnt this recipe from my mom who prepares this deliciously. And the consistency I like in my upma is a bit watery and sticky type. Thus it makes more soft and just melts in our mouth. I have noticed, even in occasion of konkani marrage's, upma is served as the main dish as breakfast with side of potato umman (gravy).


INGREDIENTS.

1 cup Rava.

1 Chopped Onions.

1/4 cup Chopped Beans.(grated carrots can also added)

1/4 tsp Chopped Ginger.

1/2 tsp Mustard seeds.

1/2 tsp Urad dal.

1 tbs Oil.

1 Green chillies.

Curry leaves .

2 1/2 cups Water.

Salt to taste.

METHOD.

Place rava in microwavable plate and roast in micro for about 2 minutes.

Heat oil in kadai and add mustard seeds. After it starts spluttering add urad dal and fry them till it changes its colour into brown. Later add ginger,greenchillies and curry leaves and saute them too for about few sec.

Add the onions, beans and salt. Fry them till its half cooked.

Add water and adjust salt as per needed. Cover with a lid and bring up to boil.(Adding hot water to the mixtures reduces ur time).

At the time of boiling add roasted rava slowly while on other hand stirring continuously. Make sure not to form any lumps. Simmer and cover with lid and let it cook for 2 min.

Remove from stove and let it sit for 5 min.


Serve along with ur fav pickle or chutney or sambhar.

This is a quick breakfast. So I am sending this to "WBB#23 EXPRESS BREAKFAST" EVENT HOSTED BY RAAGA OF THE SINGING CHEF.

I didn't take to upmas as a kid and used to groan when my mom served them but now I simply love them. Unfortunately my husband still doesn't like them so don't get to make them very often... :(

Your upma looks great and the potato gravy sounds like a nice combination.
