Idli Rava Upma

Thanks Illatharasi for sharing this tasty upma variety..We made slight changes to the dish and added a South Indian Upma touch to it by skipping the garam masala and adding the usual tempering of mustard seeds and dals.


1 cup idli rava
2 tsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp blackgram dal
1/2 tsp bengalgram dal
Salt to taste
2 green chillies
1/2 tsp ginger paste
1 small cup mixed cooked vegetables like potatoes, carrots, beans, peas, tomatoes
Few curry leaves
Finely chopped coriander leaves

Soak the rava for one hour with sufficient water until they turn out soft.

Heat oil, add mustard, blackgram dal, bengalgram dal, curry leaves, ginger paste and green chillies. When it starts spluttering, add the cooked vegetables and mix well. Now add the soft idli rava to it and add required salt. Mix well and cook covered for 10-15 minutes on low flame. Garnish with coriander leaves.

Serve hot with chutney of your choice.
