  2. Heat oil, add all the ingredients mentioned ‘for tempering’. Now add chopped onion, stir fry on medium flame until light brown. Add sooji, cubed potatoes, salt and green chilies. Mix well, add 1/4 cup water, mix briefly. Cook on low flame, stir in between. After few minutes sprinkle some more water.
  3. Add cashew nuts and sugar. Mix and cook until sooji becomes soft. At the end of the cooking you will get a soft and moist mixture, now your Upma is ready. Remove from heat. Serve immediately.
