How to Prepare
    • First of all, heat a pan. Roast the sooji or rava in the same pan.
    • Keep the flame on medium and roast the sooji.
    • Once the sooji turns aromatic, crispy and slightly golden, turn off the flame.
    • Keep the roasted rava in a separate plate and keep it aside.
    • In the same pan, heat ghee and add the mustard seeds along with curry leaves.
    • Make sure the gas flame is on medium and the mustards don't burn.
    • After this, add cumin seeds along with urad dal and chana dal.
    • Fry the lentils until golden brown or lightly golden in colour.
    • Add the finely chopped onions along with chopped chilies and ginger.
    • Saute till onions become translucent.
    • Add 2½ cups of water, sugar and salt as required. Mix well and let the water boil for 2-3 minutes.
    • While keeping the gas flame medium add sooji into the pan.
    • After adding the sooji, mix and stir immediately. Otherwise the sooji would form lumps.
    • You will see that the sooji absorbs all the water but you still need to stir continuously.
    • Once you are done mixing the sooji along with the ingredients in the pan, cover and cook the sooji for around 2-3 minutes on a low flame.
    • Turn off the flame.
    • Garnish the Upma with chopped cilantro and mix well.
