Vegetable Rava Uppittu/Upma- ತರಕಾರಿ ರವೆ ಉಪ್ಪಿಟ್ಟು 

Rava Uppittu is a simple and easy to make popular South Indian breakfast .  Rava Uppittu is also popular as 'Suji Upma' and "Rava Upma" in other part of India. Onion Uppittu and Tomato uppittu  are popular, however I prefer Vegetable Uppittu.

Rava - Cream of wheat. 


1 1/2 cups wheat rava
1 finely sliced large onion
1 large tomato, finely chopped
8-10 beans, finely chopped
1 small Potato, peeled and finely chopped
1 small Carrot, peeled and finely chopped
1/2 cup soaked green peas or tender green peas
3-4 slit green chillis
1″ ginger finely chopped
1 tbsp ghee or oil
1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
Grated coconut 4 to 5 tbsp
2 tbsp of fresh lemon juice
3 3/4 to 4 cups water
salt to taste

For seasoning:
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tbsp bengal gram
1 tbsp black gram dal
12-15 curry leaves

  • Fry wheat rava slowly  over low flame  till it turns light brown.
  • Heat oil or ghee in a pan, add the mustard seeds and let them splutter. Add bengal gram, black gram, curry leaves and saute them till the dals turn red.
  • Add the sliced onions, green chillies and ginger  and saute for 2 mts. 
  • Add the chopped vegetables, green peas and saute on medium heat for 4 mts. Add water, salt, lemon juice, grated coconut, chopped coriander and bring to a boil before adding the wheat rava.
  • Now, reduce heat and slowly add the wheat rava to the water and mix it continuously so that lumps don’t form.
  • Cover with lid and let it simmer for 12 mts. Turn off heat when there is no water left and the rava is completely cooked.
  • Serve this hot with ghee.
