Sooji Upma

Sooji Upma or Ravva upma is a commonly prepared breakfast item in South India. This is also known as Uppindi. It's quick and easy to make and goes well with Pesarattu. But I like it with sugar or peanut chutney. We can use roasted ravva or plain ravva to make this. We also can add vegetables (like tomatoes, carrots, peas, ..) to make it healthier. Here is my recipe for a basic version of upma with few ingredients -


  1. Sooji ravva - 1 cup
  2. Onion - 1 (sliced lengthwise)
  3. Green Chillies - 3 (or as required, cut into small pieces)
  4. Ginger (grated) - 1" piece
  5. Cashews nuts - handful
  6. Peanuts - handful
  7. Salt - as required
  8. Water - 2.5 cups
  9. Oil or Ghee - 3 tsps
  1. Heat ghee or oil in a pan. Add chillies, peanuts, cashews and fry till nuts are brown.
  2. Add onion, ginger and fry till onions turn brown in color.
  3. Add water to the pan and heat until water boils. Reduce the heat, add sooji ravva slowly stirring properly to avoid lumps. Add salt to this as required.
  4. Close the pan lid and cook until ravva is done (~3-5mins).
  5. Switch off the heat and serve hot.
