Today's recipe's our usual  Upma..i use peas in to it sometimes  no..you can add any veggies as you like.The proportion's 1:3 , 1 cup rava and 3 cups water,   you can adjust the water level according to it..!I don't like upma in colloidal consistency,try this n enjoy :-)

  • Roasting rava in ghee gives very flavour to the upma.
  • Add turmeric powder,in water,for the color.
  • Fine rava also suits well.
