Upma

Upma - one of the famous South Indian breakfast dish, popular all over is very easy and a simple dish. Today I have done little variation to the upma, by adding peanuts and gram dal and topping it with little farsan {Gujarati snacks generally like mixture of sev, ghatia, etc...}, which gives an extra taste to the upma.

Ingredients:
Rava 1 cup
Onion 1, finely chopped
Green Chili 1, chopped
Peanuts 1 tbsp
Gram Dal 1 tbsp
Salt as per taste
Oil 2 tbsp
Mustard Seeds 1 tsp
Asafoetida 1 tsp
Curry Leaves few
Freshly Chopped Coriander Leaves chopped few
Water 3 cups
Farsan{snacks - Sev, Ghatia}

Method:
In a pan, dry roast Rawa for 2 - 3 minutes, until it leaves an nice aroma.


In a pan heat oil. Once heated, add mustard seeds. As it starts spluttering, add asafoetida,green chili, curry leaves and onion and saute until onion turns soft and transparent. 

As onion is done, add peanuts, gram dal and mix well.

Now add water and allow it to boil properly or boil water separately and pour into this pan. Add salt at this stage, propely including salt for the rawa too. Just give a taste check here. If the water feels salty, then it is correct.

As the water is boiled, start adding rawa, stirring continuously with a spatula, so that no lumps are formed.

Once stirred, it will start bubbling getting thicker. 

Mix once, and close the lid and cook for 3 - 4 minutes

Open, and add fresh coriander leaves.

Serve.

Garnish with Farsan - sev, ghatia,etc...
