Mixed Vegetable Upma


Mixed Vegetable Upma

Today's recipe is a quick one. It is mixed vegetable upma, simple and delicious breakfast recipe or can be served as a quick and healthy snack.  I sometimes add a very little amount chopped pineapple, sweet plantains or dry raisins and a little coconut to my upma to give a sweet touch and flavor . Here I have added chopped pineapples around two to three tsp. It is optional and is just a flavor enhancer.

Ingredients
Sooji/semolina- 1 cup
Onion medium- 1
Ginger chopped- 1 tsp
Green Chilly-2
Mixed vegetables chopped-  1 cup
(carrots, green beans, green peas,2 tbs chopped pineapple)
Coconut shredded- 1/3 cup
Water- 2 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Sugar- a pinch


Mustard seeds- 1/3 tsp
Urad dal- 1 tsp
Channa dal- 1 tsp
Cashew nuts- 5-6
Hing- a pinch
Curry leaves- a few



Heat a pan and roast sooji in medium flame for about 3-4 minutes or till it slightly changes color.

Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and when it splutter add chana dal and fry for a few seconds followed by urad dal and cashew nuts. Fry till nuts change color and add curry leaves and hing. 
Saute for a second and add chopped onion,green chilly and ginger. Fry till it becomes golden brown.

 Add the mixed vegetables and sprinkle a little water and salt. Close the lid and cook for a minute so that the vegetables get soft. Pour about 2 1/2 cup of water and allow to boil.
Add the roasted sooji. Add little by little and if using a wide pan spread the sooji in circular motion and continuously stir to avoid lumps. Add grated coconut and a few drops of ghee.
Stir till all the water is absorbed and from this stage use cutting motion just like using a fork and fluffing for about two minutes and switch off the flame. Serve with coconut chutney or simply with grated coconut and lemon wedges.

Hope you will all enjoy
