Tomato Upma



  • In a large vessel, heat about 2 tbsp oil and add the tadka.
  • Once the mustard starts popping, add the chopped tomatoes
  • put the lid over the vessel to braise the tomatoes.
  • After the tomatoes are softened, add water, curry leaves and salt, and replace the lid
  • When the water comes to boil, slowly add the rava while constantly stirring. This will prevent the rava from forming clumps.
  • For added flavour, ghee and roasted cashew nuts can be added.
  • Mix well, and keep cooking till the rava is done.
  • Turn off the gas, and  keep aside for 5 minutes

Serve hot with kura podi and curds.
