Published on March 3, 2014

Upma is a breakfast which is predominantly prepared in South India, at least once a week. It is made of semolina and can be prepared in a jiffy. Over the years, various kinds are prepared and here is one such kind. This is made  sans onion and tastes equally good.

The ingredients that you need are

1 cup semolina 

1/2 bowl of assorted vegetables as beans,carrots, peas, potato

2 tbsp oil

1/2 tsp mustard seeds


1 tomato

1 tsp Bengal gram

1 tsp urad dal 

turmeric powder

1 1/2 tsp of sambar powder

1/2 tsp of chilli powder

salt to taste

3 cups of water 


Roast the semolina with a little bit of ghee until pale brown. Keep aside.

Boil the vegetables, when partly done add the tomatoes. Later,add sambar powder, chilli powder and the required quantity of salt to it. 

Take oil in a kadai and make the seasoning. Now,add the vegetables with water into it. Add some more water to it. Once,it boils add the semolina slowly into it. Keep stirring as lumps will be formed. Allow to cook for ten minutes on a slow flame. Garnish with finely cut coriander leaves.
