Other Upma recipe

  1. Upma, uppumavu or uppittu is a popular South-Indian breakfast delicacy.

You can fortify the basic upma recipe with a myriad of vegetables and enjoy it for breakfast or a quick evening snack. Here are some popular upma recipes :

How to make tomato upma

  1. To prepare tomato upma, clean and wash the tomatoes. Place them on a chopping board and roughly chop them. Transfer the tomatoes in a mixer.
  2. Blend to a smooth pulp. Keep aside. Always make use of red plump tomatoes to get a pleasant tangy flavour.
  3. To make tomato rava bath, heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan. Oil can be swapped with ghee.
  4. Once the oil is hot, add mustard seeds.
  5. Add urad dal. For an added crunch, you can toss in some cashew nuts, peanuts or chana dal.
  6. Add curry leaves and sauté on a medium flame for 30 seconds.
  7. Add onions. Add any veggies of your choice like capsicum, peas, corn, carrots to enhance the flavour of tomato rava upma.
  8. Sauté on medium flame for 2 minutes or until they are translucent.
  9. Add semolina. Many people even roast rava until aromatic and golden before using while making upma. Roasting the semolina prevents the formation of lumps.
  10. Sauté on a medium flame for 4 minutes.
  11. Add the prepared tomato pulp. Alternatively, you can even chop the tomatoes and add to the pan. You can reduce or increase the quantity of tomato as per your taste.
  12. Add chilli powder. Add more or less to suit your palate.
  13. Add sugar. Sugar helps in balancing the tangy flavour from tomatoes.
  14. Add salt.
  15. Add coriander.
  16. Mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring continuously.
  17. Add 3 cups of hot water. It is important to stir continuously to prevent the formation of lumps.
  18. Mix well and cover with a lid and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Our tomato rava upma is ready!
  19. Serve tomato upma immediately. The semolina absorbs water and thickens as it cools forming a lumpy mass so, upma tastes best when savoured immediately. You can drizzle some ghee on top and eat the tomato upma with coconut chutney or podi chutney.
