Wheat Rava - 1 cup

Curry leaves - 1 spring
Chana dal - 2 tsp
Mustard seed - 1tsp

Dry roast the Rava without oil in a pan and take out into a bowl. Roasted Rava is available in the market nowadays. We can use that one as well.

Heat ghee in a pan. We can use oil as well. But ghee will give extra flavor to the Upma.
Once ghee hot, add mustard seeds, urad dal, chana dal. Once mustard starts spluttering and chana dal become golden in color, add slit green chilli, chopped ginger, Curry leaves and fry it.
Add carrot and fry it. Once carrot fried well, add onion and fry it until it become translucent.

Now Add tomato, salt and fry it until it become mushy. Add turmeric powder and stir it.

Add 3 cups of water and bring to boil. (for 1 cup of Rava at least 3 cups of water is required. Even if you can use 4 cup, no issues. But it should not be less than 3)

Now slowly add the Rava and keep stir in parallel. Because Rava will make lumps if we not stir.
Keep stir for a minute.
Now the tasty Rava upma is ready to serve.

Coconut or Peanut chutney are best combination for Rava upma. Both chutney recipes available in my site.
