Upma in Marathi

healthy breakfast, low calorie food, Upma recipe, Indian Breakfast recipe, breakfast recipe, upama recipe, South Indian FoodIngredients:
½ cup Semolina (Farina)
1¼ to 1½ cup Water
½ cup Onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp Oil OR 2 tsp Ghee
For Tempering: ¼ tsp Mustard Seeds, ¼ tsp Cumin Seeds, ¼ tsp Asafoetida Powder
2-3 Green Chilies, finely chopped
3-4 Curry Leaves
¼ tsp grated Ginger
½ tsp Urad Dal
3-4 Cashew Nuts
Salt to taste
1 tsp Sugar
2 tbsp finely chopped Cilantro
2 tsp Lemon juice

Method:
1) Roast Semolina on medium heat until golden brown. Keep stirring while roasting, otherwise it could burn.
2) Heat a wok. Keep the heat on Medium. Add Oil and temper with Mustard seeds, Cumin Seeds, Asafoetida powder, Ginger, and Urad dal. Let Urad dal become Pinkish red, and then add Curry leaves, green Chilies, Cashew nuts. Stir for 10 seconds. Then add chopped Onion. Let it become translucent. You can add ¼ cup finely chopped tomato for flavor.
3) Then add roasted semolina and sauté. While sautéing heat 1½ cup Water on other stove top. Add salt and sugar to the water. This will spread salt evenly to Semolina.
4) Once water starts boiling add it to Semolina. Stir well and lower the heat. Cover wok with lid and let it cook for few minutes.
5) Once Upma is done, garnish with Cilantro. Add Lemon juice and serve hot.

Note:
1) Some people like very moist Upma, so add extra ½-cup hot water.
