Upma - festival version

Upma,uppittu-A wholesome healthy meal option.




Very popular for breakfast in south indian homes.

Packed with nutrition and keeps u energetic for the whole day.

My mom makes varieties of upma and each tastes so very different.One of my favourite upma is the dry variety made with peas and no onion added.So this is usually made on festivals like Shivaratri.

semolina/rava ................... 1.5 cup
water..................................3 cup
green peas frozen/fresh......3/4 cup

Process

1)Fry the semolina in medium hot flame with 1 tspn ghee till u get nice aroma.Dont make it brown!Keep stirring it  often as it burns soon.

2)Take oil in a deep bottom pan when hot add mustard seeds,cumin seeds,when it splutters add urad dal and fry till  light golden brown,add curry leaves.Then comes the ginger,fry for few seconds and add the green peas.Lets fry it for 2 min .
