Upma is a regular tiffin item we south Indian do.We do different varieties of uppa, like puli upma,thayir upma, vegetable upma, aval upma, arisi upma,kichidi , list goes on and on.

I believe my hubby used to cook rava upma often when he was alone so he hatessssssss rava upma.But on the contrary i loveeeeeeee upma.... so as a compromise between 2 of us i often make vegetable upma.... smart uh???? :)

Its simple and nutritious too with all vegges.

Sooji/Rava-1 cup
Vegetables(chopped)-1 cup
Green chilli-according to taste
Garlic-2 chopped
Saunf-1/4 tsp
Cinnamon- 1
Onion-1 small
Curry leaf- 1 or 2 strings
Turmeric powder-a pinch
Water- 3 cups(if using precooked vegetables use just 1 1/2 or 2 cups depending on the consistency of uppa you prefer)
Salt- to taste
  1. Fry rava in oil or ghee(frying in ghee makes upma very soft)till nice aroma comes and keep it aside.
  2. Chop green chilli,tomatoes, onion, garlic and vegetables.
  3. Heat oil in and add saunf,cinnamon(some people also add bay leaf),garlic,onion ,curry leaf and tomatoes.Add salt and saute well.
  4. Add the vegetables and saute.(we can also pressure cook the vegetable )
  5. Add water and let it boil.(keep it in medium flame covered for the vegetables to get cooked).
  6. Keep stirring and add rava otherwise we will get lumps.
  7. Cover and cook.

Serve with green chutney or coconut chutney.
