How to make Foxtail Millet Vegetable Upma

  1. 1. Soak foxtail millet in enough water for about 15 minutes. Cook finely chopped veggies(carrot, beans, peas) with a small pinch of salt. Keep aside.
  2. 2. Heat oil in a deep bottom pan. To hot oil add mustard seeds and wait till they crackle. Add urad dhal, channa dal and saute for a minute
  3. 3. Next add thin slices of onions, green chillies, ginger pieces and curry leaves and saute till onions turn translucent.
  4. 4. Add tomatoes and cook till they are soft. Add salt to taste and turmeric powder, mix well, fry for 20 seconds.
  5. 5. Now add the cooked veggies stir and cook for about a minute.
  6. 6. Now add 3 cups of hot water and wait till the water starts to boil. Drain water from the soaking millet and add the millet to the boiling water.
  7. 7. Stir it well, cover the pan with a lid and simmer and cook until done(all water will evaporate and millet should be fully cooked).
  8. 8. If your upma turns very dry and you see millet not fully cooked, sprinkle some water cover and cook until done.
  9. 9. 7. Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves. Serve hot with spicy coconut chutney, or pickle
  10. 10. A healthy, satisfying and tasty upma is served! Enjoy! :D

My Tip:

Add a dash of ghee once the upma is cooked just immediately after switching off the flame. It will enhance the flavor and taste of the dish.
