Tomatoes added to the regular rava upma takes it to next level. At times, my dad ask my mom to add tomato or lemon to the regular rava upma as he likes that tanginess in rava upma. I have not tried as I just like my plain upma and want the original taste. I make it very rarely to avoid semolina, so when I make, I want it just plain. But this tomato rava upma idea never strike me until my reader friend Kaminni Sreeram sent me the picture. It was so attractive and tempting with the tomato and red chilli powder’s natural colour. I wanted to try it out immediately and post it too. But took my own time as usual . I made it today for our breakfast and totally loved it. Vj too had it without any complain (Upma hater). I am not sure if he had it without any other choice teheheheee .
Serve hot, we had it as such but if you want, you can serve with coconut chutney the best accompaniment for this.
