jowar upma is a healthier upma as compared to the traditional rava upma usually made in most households. Learn how to make jowar atta upma.
Ready in a jiffy, vegetable jowar upma is a healthy snack you can whip up for breakfast, supper, or just any time of the day. This is made by replacing a large quantity of the refined semolina with fibre and iron rich green peas and jowar flour. Of course, a small portion of rava is used to improve the consistency.
To make jowar upma, heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan, add the mustard seeds and urad dal. When the mustard seeds crackle, add the asafoetida and curry leaves and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds. Add the onions and sauté on a medium flame for 1 minute. Add the semolina and sauté on a medium flame for another 2 minutes. Add the jowar flour and sauté on a medium flame for 2 more minutes. Add the green peas, green chilli paste, coriander and salt and mix well. Add 3 cups of hot water, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes, while stirring continuously. Add the lemon juice and mix well. Serve immediately.
To make it healthier, you can also add vegetables like carrot, capsicum and tomatoes to add to the taste, crunch and nutrient quotient. Like with most millet-based foods, it is essential to serve the homemade jowar rava upma immediately.
