Rava Upma

Hmmm yummy, comes handy when I am not in mood to spend time but need a yummy tiffin to eat :)

Ingredients :
Rava - 3/4 cup
Salt - 1/2 spoon
Oil / Ghee
Onions - 1 (Optional.)

To temper :
Mustard -1/4 spoon
Urad Dal - 1/2 spoon
Green chilli - 2
Red chilli - 1
Curry Leaves

Fry the rava in dry tava for few minutes till the aroma comes /colour changes. Keep aside.
Add a spoon of oil in tava, temper the ingredients, fry onions, add 2 glasses of water, add salt.
When the water is boiling hot, (you may choose to taste this water and add salt as required) add the fried rava little by little parallely mixing them so as not to form any lumps.
Add a spoon of ghee (more ghee will increase the taste)
Once boiled , Switch off and keep covered for sometime.

The amount of water required for rava varies with each brand. It can be known in one or two trials.
Unfortunately the brand I grabbed from the Indian grocery is not so good. I need atleast 4-5 glasses of water for 1 cup of rava.

This could be made as Vegetable upma too. Add the vegetables like carrot/beans/cabbage.Add the cut vegetables after tempering, fry them a little, add water and let it boil. Once boiled, add the rava and proceed the same way.
