Servings 2 SERVINGS
- 1 cup Sooji (Semolina)
- 1 medium onion chopped
- 1/2 cup Carrots, thinly cut
- 7-8 pieces of Curry leaves
- 1/2 teaspoon Mustard seeds
- 1/2 teaspoon Red chili powder
- 1 cup Curd (beaten)
- 1 cup Water + 3 tablespoons more
- 1.5 tablespoon Oil
- 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice
- 1 teaspoon Salt (adjust accordingly, this is what I use)
Assemble all the ingredients.
In a pan dry roast sooji until it's light brown in color. Set it aside.
Heat oil in a pan. Add curry leaves, mustard seeds and as they start to sputter mix in onions, carrots and saute until carrots are soft and tender. Mix in red chili powder and salt.
Saute and cook for a minute.
Mix in roasted sooji...
And mix until well blended.
Pour in curd and keep stirring...
Add water and keep stirring. Make sure no lumps are formed.
And bring it to a boil.
As it starts to thicken up, take it off the flame and cover. If you prefer upma of a thick and gooey consistency, then take it off the flame. Allow it to sit for a while and it will thicken up. If you prefer your upma on a dry and fluffy side, add less water and cook a bit longer until water evaporates and upma dries out and becomes fluffy.
Serve it hot along with green chutney and hot tea.
