There are many variations of making upma like tomato bath, masala bath, kichidi etc. I am sharing here the basic version where rava is dry roasted and cooked with onions and green chilli. Dry roasting the rava ahead saves you some more time. I always buy Naga’s double roasted rava and use it directly.

Notes

I use double roasted rava so skip roasting most of the time.

You can roast the rava and keep it ready to save time

You can add some veggies and small tomato too.

Add some grated ginger for additional flavor and garnish with coriander leaves

We love the consistency of the upma to be soft and smooth. You can reduce the water to 2.5 cups if you want it grainy.

Adding ghee elevates the flavor of the upma so don't skip it.
