Ingredients to make Vegetable Upma

  • semolina (Rava / Suji) - 1 cup
  • onion - 1 small
  • carrot - 1 small
  • cauliflower - 3-5 florets
  • Shelled peas - a handful
  • green chillies - 1
  • ginger - 1/2 inch
  • curry leaves - a few
  • mustard seeds - 1 tsp
  • black gram (without skin) ( Urad dhuli ) - 2 tsp
  • Bengal Gram (chana dal) - 2 tsp
  • oil - 5-6 tbsp
  • clarified butter (Ghee) - 1 tbsp
  • water - 2-3 Cups
  • salt to taste.

How to make Vegetable Upma

  1. Dry roast the semolina (rava/suji) without oil for about 8-10 mins
  2. While the semolina is roasting finely chop onions, green chillies and carrots.
  3. Grate cauliflower florets and ginger.
  4. In a wok add oil and once it comes up to heat, add the mustard seeds.
  5. When the mustard seeds pop, add the Black gram and the Bengal gram and saute till golden in colour.
  6. Add all the cut and grated vegetables, curry leaves and shelled peas and saute over a low flame.
  7. Once the vegetables soften add the roasted semolina and saute for a couple of more minutes.
  8. Add 2 cups of water and salt and quickly mix so that no lumps are formed.
  9. Keep stirring till it thickens.
  10. Add some more water and mix to keep the upma moist since children are going to eat it later.
  11. Add the clarified butter (ghee) at the end for nice aroma and flavour.

My Tip:

Sauteeing semolina along with the vegetables in oil prevents lumps when you add water.
