I started liking godhuma rava upma only after I started cooking. Now too many of my family members don’t prefer godhuma rava upma. First of all upma itself is not preferred, and this is no exception. Once I ate this upma during my school days in a Bhajan trip to trichy in an ashram and it tasted very flavourful. When ever I feel like having some filling breakfast, I make this wheat rava upma. Vj likes it mixed with curd and sugar. I have already posted wheat rava upma in microwave method with step by step pictures. I updated stove top method in that before, but thought of having a separate post for stove top method with step by step pictures for beginners in cooking. This is a very healthy and flavourful south Indian breakfast recipe.

Godhuma rava upma recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Breakfast/ dinner
Prep Time10 mins    |  Cook time: 20 mins     Serves: 3


Wheat rava (roasted) – 1 cup

Onion – 1

Green chilli – 4

Chopped carrot, green peas – 1/2 cup

Water – 3 cups

Salt – As needed

To temper

Mustard – 3/4 tsp

Urad dal – 2 tsp

Channa dal – 1 tbsp

Oil – 2 tbsp

Curry leaves  - 1 sprig


  1. Fry the rava in medium flame for 2 minutes with a tsp of oil if its not roasted rava. This is optional too, I don't roast, still love the aroma. 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.
  2. 1-temper
  3. Add the veggies and fry for two minutes in medium low flame. Add water. Bring to boil.
  4. 2-add-veggies
  5. After it boils, add the wheat rava little by little in a sprinkled way. Stir well.
  6. 3-boil-water
  7. Add salt and let it boil in high flame until the water content reduces and the mixture turns like porridge consistency.
  8. 4-cook
  9. Now simmer the flame to low and cook covered for 10 minutes or till all the water is absorbed and you get a soft upma. You can add a tsp of coconut oil at end for a unique flavour!
  10. 5-done


    • Adding a tsp of coconut oil or ghee towards the end enhances the flavour.
    • I used frozen peas. You can use fresh. You can make without veggies, but adds nutrition.
    • If you want more softer upma, you can add 1/2 cup more water.
    • You can add a tsp of finely chopped ginger along with green chilli.

Serve hot with chutney or sugar. I had with karuvepillai kuzhambu and it was amazing.
