Rava Upma is a one of the easiest Indian breakfast. We often make this dish at home. It is made with semolina, you can even add in some veggies if you wish. I have even added little sugar as we prefer slightly sweeter version but you can skip it.
You can even have this as a tea time snacks. It hardly takes 15 mins to make this dish, so if you are in hurry then this is the best dish to make for breakfast or snacks.
How To Make Rava Upma?
Rava / Semolina - 1 Cup
Grated Coconut - 1/4 Cup
Onion - 1 Medium Size
Green Chili - 2
Mustard Seeds - 1/4 Tsp
Urad Dal - 1/4 Tsp
Curry Leaves - 6
Sugar - 2 Tsp
Chopped Coriander Leaves - 1 Tbsp
Hot Water - 2 Cup
Salt - As Per Taste
Oil - 1 Tbsp
First finely chop onion and green chili. Heat a kadai and roast rava for 1 min or till you get a nice aroma of rava. Don't roast for longer time or the color of rava will change. Once done transfer it to a bowl.
Now in the same kadai add oil. Once the oil is hot add mustard seeds and urad dal. Let it splutter. Now add onion and cook till it turns transparent. Add green chili and curry leaves. Cook for 1 more min.
Now add rava/semolina and mix well. Pour hot water, add grated coconut, sugar and salt. Mix well. It will start thickening and will absorb the water. Now cover the lid and cook till done.
Now add in coriander leaves and mix well.
Your Rava Upma is ready to serve.
Serve hot with chutney.
