I wanted to post a simple dish after posting the two choco - licious beauties. This is a dish which is very popular in all kerala households. It's none other than our Upma. It's a healthy breakfast meal and it is very easy to prepare. I should give a heartfelt thanks to the person who invented cereals. Myself and 'A' have cereals for breakfast for almost five days of the week. It's during weekend that we will have a break from the routine. When comes to food 'A' is not at all fussy. We usually eat this with sugar or pickle. Today 'A' told me that he will help me in kitchen and made this dish. My mom adds milk in it instead of water. It gives more taste for the dish. So I thought of sharing it with my blogosphere family. 

Recipe Source : My Mom


Roasted Rava - 1 Glass
Milk - 1/2 Glass
Water - 1/2 Glass
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Urad Dal - 1 tsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Onion - 1 big finely chopped
Green Chillies - 2
Ginger -  1 small piece finely chopped
Grated Carrot - 1 medium
Red Chilli Bits - 4 pieces


Crackle the mustard seeds. Add the onion mix. When green chillies turn colour, add the measured liquid and salt . As soon as it boils, lower heat and add the rava and mix quickly and close it with a lid. After a little while remove the lid and mix well.
