Upma using Ready mix


Potato - 1 Medium, chopped into tiny cubes
Cauliflower - 1 cup, tiny pieces

Boil Potato and Cauliflower for a few mins to cook the tiny pieces. Keep aside after draining. Add cold water if you over-boiled and need to stop the cooking process immediately.

Canola oil - 1 tbsp
Chopped onion - 1 Medium
Green Chilli - 1-2, chopped
Rava Uppuma Mix - store-bought, a mix of Semolina, some lentils such as Chana dal and Urad dal with mustard seeds and dry curry leaves - 2-3 cups

Water : 2 times the amount of Rava Uppuma Mix


 Heat Canola oil.
Add chopped Onions and Green Chillis and let it cook till the Onion is translucent.
Add the cooked Potato and Cauliflower.
Add Water and let it boil in High heat after mixing well.
Slowly stir in the Upma mix and keep stirring in circles so that lumps do not form.
Cover the container for a few mins in Medium heat.
Serve hot. We love ours with Coconut Chutney.
