Whole Wheat Rava Upma



Hi

I think i have been very sporadic in blogging for quite some time. Srivalli's blogging challenge was truly the much needed push for me to blog regularly.The blogging marathon brought in huge hits to my page,I wouldn't hesitate to say that the visibilty has tremendously increased. Thanks to Srivalli and the marathon members.As the members visited each other daily, it sort of formed a personal bond. Feels great. I hope this marathon continues in coming months.Thanks again Srivalli and the other marathon bloggers for your continuous support even when i wasn't able to blog regularly

I guess i have talked enough , now lets move on to today's recipe.
Whole wheat rava upma tastes better than the usual sooji and is more healthier and filling too good for a healthy breakfast.

INGREDIENTS

Whole;e wheat rava 1cup

Onion 1

Capsicum Green/Yellow 1 each

Green chillies 2

Corn 1/4 cup

Green peas 1/4 cup

Oil 1 tbsp

Mustard seeds 2 tsp

Black gram dhal 2 tsp

Asafoetida 1/2 tsp

Curry leaves few

Coriander leaves 3 tbsp



PREPARATION


Cook the rava in the pressure cooker. I used 4 cups water and cooked for 3 whistles

Cut all the vegetables finely.

Take oil in a pan, heat it on medium flame and add mustard, black gram dhal.

When the mustard seeds splutter add the cut green chillies , curry leaves and saute for a minute.

Now add the onion, saute till it becomes transparent and add peas, capsicum and boiled corn

When the vegetables are half baked, add the cooked rava and mix well. Add the necessary salt and cook for another 10 minutes with the lid closed in a very low flame.

Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves

Serve warm for a wholesome healthy breakfast
