Upma is a popular South Indian breakfast dish made from semolina (rava) or coarse rice flour. It is cooked by sautéing the flour with mustard seeds, curry leaves, chopped onions, green chilies, and other aromatic spices. Water is added to the mixture and cooked until the grains absorb the moisture and become fluffy. Upma can be customized with the addition of vegetables like carrots, peas, and beans, giving it a colorful and nutritious touch. It is typically served hot and garnished with chopped coriander leaves and a squeeze of lemon juice. Upma is a wholesome and satisfying dish that is enjoyed as a breakfast or light meal option.
