Sooji upma/Nonta Suji


Semolina or sooji upma is a  common breakfast item that I usually make during weekend when we get bored of eating roti sabji and bread omlete . This is a very easy preparation and I made it a healthy one too by adding vegetables like carrot and capsicum.

Ingredients:

Sooji/Semolina                      
2 cup
Carrot (chopped finely)        
1/2 cup
Capsicum (chippes finely)    
1/2 cup
Ginger (grated)                    
1 tbsp
Green chillis (chopped)          
2pc
Mustard seeds                    
1 tsp
Cumin seeds                      
1tsp
Bay leaves                        
2
Roasted peanut                  
2 tbsp
Turmeric powder                
1 tsp
Salt as per taste

Sugar                                    
1 tsp
Ghee

Chopped coriander for garnishing




Method:
  1. In a pan, add little ghee and roast sooji  in medium flame for about 5 minutes. Keep it aside.
  2. In a pan heat 1 tbp of ghee and add mustard seeds, cumin seeds and bay leaves. When mustard splutters, add grated ginger and green chili. Fry for a few seconds and add chopped vegetables (carrot and capsicum) and fry for 5 minutes.
  3. Add turmeric powder, red chili powder and roasted peanut, salt and sugar and stir well.
  4. Now add roasted sooji and mix it well. Pur 4 cups of water (double the amount of sooji added)to that. Stir continuously in low flame for 5 minutes.
  5. Remove it  add some ghee adn garnish with chopped coriander.
      Serve hot as a wonderful breakfast item.
