Upma is a popular South Indian breakfast dish. There are many ways Upma is prepared; indeed, every upma cook usually will incorporate variations in flavour when making Upma. This variation is obtained by varying or emphasising particular spices. The one i am writing here is perhaps the most easy , tasty and very light. That makes it a healthier snack option for kids as well.

 Things you need:

Semolina 1 cup

-Onion 1 small thinly sliced

-Curry Leaves 5-6

-Green Chillies 4-5 chopped finally

-Musturd seeds 1 tsp

-Tomato 1 small diced

-Yellow lentil 1 tsp

-Salt to tast

-Oil 1/4 cup


Heat oil and add musturd seeds and pop it for a minute. Add curry leaves and fry. 

-Add onions, yellow lentil and green chillies. Fry a little until onions are transparent.

-Add little water and cover. Let it cook to soften the onions and the green chillies will also create a nice flavor while cooking.

-Add salt and semonlina and mix well. Add water gradually just to cover the semolina. make sure you don’t make it too runny.

-Sprinkle diced tomatoes on top, cover and cook until done.

-Serve immediately!


Kitchen Tip: Microwave a lemon for 15 seconds and double the juice you get before squeezing.
