About Kurdai Upma Recipe

Packed with the goodness of wheat. This came in as a rescue to change my son's habit of savouring on dehydrated noodles.

How to make Kurdai Upma

  1. In a pan, boil water. Soak kurdai in it for some time. I soaked them till I chopped my chillies, onions and coriander. Drain the water off kurdai by transferring to a colander. Fluff slightly with a fork.
  2. Chop onion and green chillies.
  3. In another pan, prepare the tempering with oil, mustard seeds, hing, curry leaves. Add chopped green chillies, urad dal followed by peanuts. Add the onions.Saute.To this add the boiled kurdai. Mix well. Add salt to taste.
  4. Cover and cook for 2 mins. Garnish with coriander and serve hot.

My Tip:

Add in vegetables to make it extra nutritious.
