Method

  1. Dry-roast the semolina until it just begins to turn brown, then set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan/wok, heat the cooking oil.
  3. Add mustard seeds and wait for them to sputter. Then add cumin, ginger, green chillies and chopped onions and fry until onions caramelise.
  4. Add vegetables, salt and 1.5 cups of water, and bring to boil.
  5. Add the roasted rava, turn down the heat, and mix quickly to avoid lumps forming.
  6. The upma is done when all the water is absorbed by the rava.
  7. Garnish with grated coconut, chopped cilantro leaves and lemon juice.
