What do  I make for breakfast today? This is the question most of us ask every morning. Of course there are many people I know, who plan their menu well in advance. I wish I could join their club!!

I finally decided to make UPMA or UPPIT as we call it in Karnataka. Now now, I can imagine the expressions on your faces.
It is not that bad folks. With the right amount of oil and spices it really tastes yummy. It is my hubby's favorite breakfast and anytime menu. :-)

I tried to bring a little variation to the conventional upma and what I got was a really delicious dish.Hope you like it too. 

So here goes the method.


1 cup rawa

1medium sized onion

1 small capsicum

1/2 cup chopped methi (fenugreek )leaves

3-4 green chillies

 a pinch of turmeric

5-6 tbsp oil

1/2 tsp each of jeera (cummin), mustard, chana dal (bengalgram dal )and udad dal (black gram)
salt to taste 

Heat oil in a thick bottomed pan.When the mustard splutters add green chilies and onions and saute for a few secs. Then add chopped capsicum.Fry for a few secs.Add the chopped methi leaves.

    When the water starts to dry up add the rawa and fry well till the raw smell is gone and the rawa is well roasted.Add a pinch of turmeric. Meanwhile boil two cups of water along with salt. Add the water ,(keep the flame to low) mix once and cover the pan with a lid. When  cooked mix well again and garnish with grated coconut.
