Veggie Upma

Today I thought of going healthy though I hardly prefer that! Mostly I have posted those recipes which is tasty and high in calories so here I brought something for those who is looking for healthy food, also when I used to go  to gym (before marriage) my trainer told me to have upma and oats as breakfast and to quit eating rotis in the morning so thought of making it with veggies to make it more nutritious! So here goes the recipe.

Ingredients :
  • Roasted Sooji(Rava) -2 tea cup
  • Mustard Seeds-1 tsp
  • Urad - 1 tsp
  • Onion-1 no
  • Tomato-1 no
  • Carrot-1 no
  • Capsicum-1/2 
  • Boiled Peas-handful
  • Green chilli-3 no
  • Ginger-1 small piece
  • Curry leaves-7-8no
  • Coriander leaves- 2tsp
  • Water-2-3 cups
  • Oil-For deep fry
  • Salt(As per taste)
Step 1 : Add oil in the pan and first add mustard and allow it to crackle and then add urad dal and add curry leaves(be careful that it don't go in your eyes, I am always scared while putting curry leaves ) then add ginger paste and allow it it turn light golden!

Step 2: Now add Onions and green chilli and fry a little and then add carrot, capsicum and boiled peas and fry it for some time, now put tomatoes and little salt.

Step 3: Mix them properly and after 2 min add 2 cups water and when the water is boiled properly then comes the time to add roasted Rava(Sooji) and salt as per taste.

Step 4: Now cook till the water is dried and yes stir it till the water is all gone.(you can add lemon juice if you like sour taste along with roasted rava in the pan)

Step 5 : Now garnish it with coriander leaves and your nutrious Upma is ready to be served!

You can also make oats in the same way and stay healthy.
