A great way to start the day with a wholesome "Vegetable Upma" along with a hot cup of chai....
Suji/ semolina / rava -1 cup
Mixed Vegetables, chopped - 1 1/2 cup (carrots, peas, french beans, capsicum (red and green)
Onion, chopped - 1 large
Tomato,chopped - 1 large
Green chillies, chopped - 2
Ginger, chopped - 1 tablespoon
Fresh coriander chopped - 2-3 tablespoon
Fresh lime juice - 1 tablespoon
Curry leaves - 10 - 12
Mustard seeds - 1 teaspoon
Urad dal (Black gram dal), - 1 tablespoon
Oil - 2 tablespoon
Salt to taste
Water - 2 1/2cups
Clean, wash and soak urad dal for an hour.
Dry roast the Suji in a kadhai till it changes colour to light pink (I have used pre roasted suji as it is readily available in supermarkets.)
Heat oil in a kadhai, add the mustard seeds and let them crackle,add the curry leaves along with the chopped onions and green chillies fry for 3-4 minutes and add the chopped tomatoes. Once the tomatoes start getting tender add the soaked urad dal and fry for 3-4 minutes.
Add the dry roasted suji and fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the water along with the lime juice mix give it a good stir to avoid formation of any lumps, cover and cook for 2-3 or until all the water is absorbed.
Serve hot along with hot cup of tea or coffee. Enjoy.
