Rava upma is a quick and easy to make breakfast dish. But most often children do not touch it as it looks bland. To make the dish more interesting, we can veggies into it. This not only adds colour to the dish but also makes it more healthy and flavourful.

2 cups sooji/ rava/semolina
1 carrot finely chopped
10 french beans thinly sliced
1/4 cup green peas
1 potato finely cut into cubes
5 tbsp oil or ghee
½ tsp mustard seeds
Pinch of asafoetida
2 dry red chillies broken and deseeded
1 onion finely chopped
8 to 10 curry leaves
1 tsp salt (or to taste)
pinch of turmeric
4 ½ cups water

  • Heat oil or ghee in a pan, add mustard seeds and allow the seeds to sputter.
  • Add onions and saute for a few minutes till they turn golden.
  • Now add the vegetables and saute for a few minutes till they are cooked.
  • Next add dry red chillies, curry leaves, turmeric powder and asafoetida and mix well.
  • Add water and salt and bring to a boil.
  • When it starts boiling, reduce heat and add the semolina slowly, while stirring continuously. Make sure that there are no lumps.
  • Continue cooking and stirring for a couple of minutes till most of the water has evaporated and large boils are seen.
  • Now reduce heat, close a lid and cook for 2 or 3 minutes.
  • Check if the semolina is cooked and switch off the gas.
  • Serve hot with sambar, and chutney. We usually serve it with groundnut chutney.
