ShareAs kids,the one dish we would hate for breakfast was-Upma.We would make fun of it-giving names such as concrete :-).I have developed a liking for it over the years though.I really dont know why so many people hate this delight?This recipe is my own invention.Different and great in taste and healthy with all the veggies that go into it.I'm sure the upma haters will definitely go for a second helping!


Ingredients:
  • Roasted semolina(rava/sooji)-2 cups
  • Chopped onions-3tbsp
  • Chopped mixed vegetables(carrots/peas/beans)-1cup
  • Chopped tomatoes-3tbsp
  • Turmeric powder-1/2tsp
  • Oil-4tbsp
  • Water-5cups
  • Salt-to taste
Grind to a paste:
  • Mint leaves-1/2cup
  • Corriander leaves-1/2cup
  • Thick curds-1/2cup
  • Green chillies-4
  • Cinnamon stick-1 inch
  • Cloves(laung)-2
  • Cardamom(elaichi)-1
  • Ginger-1inch
  • Garlic-4cloves of medium size
  • Grated coconut-1tbsp
Method:
Heat oil in a a pan.Add chopped onions and saute till golden brown.
Add the ground paste and saute till the oil separates.

Add the chopped veggies ,turmeric,curds and tomatoes,salt and saute for a couple of minutes.


Add water and bring to a boil.Close the lid and simmer for about 5mins till the veggies get tender.
Check for salt.

Switch off stove and very slowly add the roasted sooji to the water stirring all the while.Make sure there are no lumps.
Close the lid and switch on the stove on low flame.Let it cook for a couple of minutes.

Serve hot.It is tasty as it is.You may also serve it with pickles or curd raita.
