Upma is a popular South Indian breakfast dish made with semolina (rava) and a variety of vegetables and spices. It is a simple and quick recipe where roasted semolina is cooked with a tempering of mustard seeds, curry leaves, onions, and other vegetables like carrots, peas, and green beans. The addition of water and a gentle simmer results in a fluffy and flavorful dish. Upma can be customized with different vegetables and garnished with fresh coriander leaves, grated coconut, or roasted peanuts. It is often served hot and enjoyed with coconut chutney or pickle.
