Pepper and Tomato Upma

My mom, seeing that I hadn't eaten anything till 11 am today, was nice enough to make a batch of upma for me today. However, I did supervise the cooking - since she usually loves to cook stuff for much longer than I would like, and does not put in quite as much veggies as I would like. I added green peppers, carrots, and tomatoes this time.

Pepper and Tomato Upma

  • 1 cup semolina or an upma premix
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 tomato
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 large green chilli
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • Teaspoon of vegetable oil
  • Half a lime

To make:
  • In a pan, gently dry roast the semolina/upma premix for a minute or two.
  • In another pot, heat the oil and saute the onions and the chilli.
  • Add the roasted semolina and cook for approximately 7-10 minutes.
  • Once the semolina is cooked, turn off the gas and add the chopped up vegetables.
  • Serve immediately with lashings of lime juice.

hey there! just got your comment on my blog! Are you really in Mumbai? we have two days at the end of our trip, Feb 1 & 2, and we are trying to decide what to do. We fly out of Mumbai LATE at night on the 2nd, so we might just come up to Mumbai... but we were also thinking of seeking out somewhere a little more quiet? Are you in Mumbai?? That could be fun to meet up... you can email me at ameyfm at yahoo dot com !

Is upma similar to couscous? I want to make this, and I'm very familiar with preparing couscous, but have never heard of upma. (Google, here I come!)

Raw_Girl said...

@ Gongo Mama, they are similar in that both of them are made from wheat. Upma is plain semolina, while couscous is made of semolina coated with wheat flour (or so google tells me)

Love the idea of adding green peppers to upma. Actually it's been ages since I made upma, this reminds me of that!
