Rava upma and Semiya upma is one of my favourite breakfast dishes. You can easily prepare this upma within 10 minutes with a handful of chopped onions and few ginger and green chillies. As you all familiar with this Rava Upma we will see some important tips for a tasty upma.
When roasting the rava, try to roast it well on medium heat until you can smell a nutty flavour. Roasting the rava makes a more flavourful upma. You can also add a tsp of ghee for roasting the rava. For many rava upma dishes it requires two parts of water for one part of rava. The stovetop cooking will produce perfect results. For Bansi rava, you can use a pressure cooker.
The main flavours for upma come from green chillies, ginger and curry leaves. The coconut oil will add a nice flavour to the upma and also helps for a non sticky upma.
