A simple upma with a flavour of tomato in it.
1 cup rawa
2 medium tomatoes finely chopped
2 cups water
1 tsp mustard seeds
2 tsp urad dal
2 pinches of turmeric powder
Few curry leaves roughly torn
2 green chillies slit
1 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves
Salt to taste
½ tsp sugar (optional)
Ghee + oil 2 tbsp
Lets start cooking:
In a wide pan heat ghee/oil or ghee+oil.
Add urad dal and when a little golden in colour add mustard seeds.
Once the mustard splutters add slit green chillies and turmeric powder
and saute for a few seconds.
Add the chopped tomatoes and cook until the fat(oil/ghee) leaves the sides of the pan.
When this is done add 2 cups water,salt and allow it to roll boil.
Now add rawa and keep mixing without allowing it to form lumps.
Once the rawa absorbs the water and upma gets thick its time to add coriander leaves and remove from the flame.
Serve hot with a cup of tea or coffee.
You can dry roast or roast the rawa in a tsp oil if you wish to get a different flavour in your tomato bath , but I
WE love it without
If you are calorie conscious then reduce the amount of ghee or oil in your tomato Bath but it tastes awesome with extra ghee ;).
I even add a handful of green peas to this most of the time you can add any veggies of your choice.
