Ingredients

How to Make Masala Upma

  • Chop the onions, green chillies and tomatoes finely.
  • Soak the gram dal for half-an-hour.
  • Saute the semolina in a separate vessel in 5-6 tbsp of oil on a very low flame.
  • Heat about 12-14 tbsp of oil in a heavy bottomed vessel.
  • Put in the mustard seeds.
  • Once they splutter, add onions, green chillies, cashew nuts, curry leaves and gram dal.
  • Fry till the onions are light pink in colour.
  • Add the tomatoes.
  • After a couple of minutes put in the water and let it boil.
  • Once the gram dal is a little tender, add the roasted semolina and salt, stirring all the while till the semolina absorbs the water and is fairly dry.
  • Remove from the flame and mix it with lemon juice.
  • Serve hot, garnished with coriander leaves.
