Masala Upma


I love upma done by mom which is in semi solid form.She takes more water than required to get that semi solid and i always eat upma with ghee and sugar.I never used to eat upma done by anyone other than my mom  but after my marriage i started eating upma made by m-law,i just love it.This is her recipe of adding masala and tomatoes to upma.Here goes the recipe :-


Semolina/Sooji/Bombay rava/upma rava  1 cup
Water 1 1/2 cup
Tomtatoes 1 chopped
Onions 1 chopped
Green chillies 2 chopped
Ginger 1'' pc finely chopped
Garam masala powder 1 tsp
Turmeric powder 1/4 tsp
Red chilly powder 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste

For seasoning/tempering/tadka

Oil 3 tbsp
Mustard/Rai 1/2 tsp
Udat dal 1/4 tsp
Channa dal 1/2 tsp

How to make masala upma

In a skillet take oil and add all the seasonings .When they splutter add onion and green chillies.
