There are many types of upma and this is the basic sooji upma. Upma is a hot favorite South Indian Breakfast!

Upma is a quick and delicious comfort food that it is prepared in every household at least once in a week, which is made in sooji or semolina or Rava. For this recipe we need only few ingredients which we use in out daily cooking. Here goes it

Easy to make & make it Easy:



Sooji (upma Rava) – 1 cup

Green chili – 3

Onion – 1 cup (cut into length wise)

Cashew – 3 (optional)

Water –2 cups

Oil- 2 tsp

Mustard seeds – ½ tsp

Urad dal – ½ tsp

Channa dal – ½ tsp

Curry leaves – 1 spring

Salt – to taste


Heat oil in a pan and once it is heated up add channa dal, urad dal, mustard seeds. Allow mustard seeds to splutter and add curry leaves. Then add onion, green chilies and fry till the onion turn into translucent. Once it is done add water and salt to the mixture and allow it to boil. When the mixture started to boil add sooji slowly and stir continuously; make sure there should not be any lumps. Keep stirring it for 3 mins on low heat. Switch off the stove and serve hot with chutney.

Note: Same method for the seemiya upma. You should replace upma (Rava)/sooji to seemiya for it.
