    1. Fry the rava in medium flame for 2 minutes iwth a tsp of oil. This is optional,I now a days dont roast,still love the aroma.
    2. Heat the kadai/pan with oil and temper with mustard,urad dal,channa dal. Add the curry leaves,followed by slit green chillies and chopped onion and fry till onion just turns transparent.
    3. Add the veggies and fry for two minutes in medium low falme. Add water(I add 3 cups of water for 1 cup of wheat rava in stove top method). Bring to boil.
    4. After it boils nicely,add the wheat rawa little by little in a sprinkled way. Stir well.
    5. Add salt(I add 1 and 1/8 tsp,adjust according to ur taste) and let it boil in high flame until the water content reduces and the mixture turns like porridge consistency.
    6. Now simmer the flame to low and cook covered for 6-8 minutes or till all the water disappears and you get a soft upma. You can add a tsp of coconut oil at end for a unique flavour!

      Godumai upma is my hubby's fav.He loves it soaked in sour curd before tempering and cooking..
