Rava Upma Receipe
Dry roast rava until it is hot to touch. If you have got ready made roasted rava, you can skip this step. Chop onions, ginger and green chillies finely.
Heat 3 tsp of oil, add mustard seeds, when it splutters, add urad dal, red chillies and curry leaves.
When dal turns golden brown, add chopped onions, green chillies and ginger. Saute until onions turn transparent. Then add 2 cups of water, ghee and salt needed. Taste the water and check for salt.(if it is a bit salty, then it will become perfect after adding rava). When the water starts boiling, reduce the flame to low, add rava gradually with one hand and keep stirring with your other hand. Once the rava absorbs all the water, cover and cook on low flame for 6-7 minutes. Do not forget to stir in between. Delicious rava upma is ready to be served. It can be paired with Tomato chutney, coconut chutney, sambar or any pickle.
