Usually I prepare this on Fridays,because being a holiday,everyone gets up a little late and will be having a heavy meal for lunch(after the prayers) that is a biriyani or ghee rice,so those who don't have a breakfast that day there's no problem..Now coming to the recipe...
Rava/Sooji/Semolina 11/2 cup
Water 3 cups(boiling)
Onion 1 medium (finely chopped)
Carrot grated 3 tbsp
Coriander leaves 3 tbsp
Green chillies 2-3 slit lengthwise
Ginger chopped 2 tsp
Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp
Urad dal/Split black gram 1 tsp
Dry red chilli 1
Salt as needed
Oil 2 tbsp
Ghee 1 tbsp
-Heat a pan.Add oil and ghee.
-Simultaneously on another stove keep water for boiling.
-Now add the mustard seeds to the oil and when it starts to splutter add the cumin seeds and the urad dal.
-After 2-3 seconds add the dry red chilly and the chopped onion.
-Saute for a minute and add the green chilly and the chopped ginger.
-Now add the grated carrot and the coriander leaves.Saute for a minute.
-Add in the Semolina and saute for 2-3 minutes on medium flame (be careful not to burn).Also add the salt and mix properly.
-Now add the boiling water and give a quick stir(so that the semolina and salt gets mixed properly without forming any lumps).
-Mix well stirring till the water gets absorbed completely and the upma gets cooked,cover it with a lid for 4-5 minutes on low flame.
-Now switch off the flame,fluff up the upma and serve.
*Adding carrot and coriander leaves is optional.Instead of coriander leaves you may add curry leaves and veggies of your choice..beans,green peas etc..or make it just plain without any veggies.
