Vegetable Rava Upma | Sooji upma | Rava Kichadi Recipe

vegetable upma

Vegetable Rava Upma is a quick breakfast which makes a great tasting. Normally people give a weird reaction when we say I am going to prepare upma today. The basic upma is quiet difficult to have in the morning. But if you prepare upma with vegetables they will definitely fall in love with them. The flavors of vegetables will add a nice taste to this upma. You can make certain variations depending on your preference. 

Here is the recipe...



Sooji / Semolina / Rava - 1 cup
Carrot - 1, large
Beans - 6
Big Onion - 1(medium)
Tomato - 1 small(optional)
Green chilli - 2
Ginger - 1/2 inch piece
Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
Salt - to taste
Water - as needed

To Temper:

Oil - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Urad dal - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - a sprig


Dry roasted suji(rava) and keep aside. Finely chop the onion and vegetables.

Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds. When it splutters, add urad dal, curry leaves and minced ginger.

Add in green chilli, onion and sauté until it becomes translucent. Then add the tomato.

When it becomes mushy, add the vegetables and stir for 3 mins.

Add in enough water and bring it to boil. When the vegetables are cooked well, add salt and turmeric.
