Wheat Ravva Upma is an ideal breakfast  and also one pot meal and quite nutritious as it has vegetables ..can be made very easily..I make this in a pressure cooker ..if you want you can also make it in a pan...this is how it is...

1. Wheat ravva 1 cup
2. Onions 1
3. Tomato 1
4. Chillies 2 or 3(individual preference)
5. Peas 1 tablespoon
6. Carrot 1 (big)

7. Potatoes 2
8. Curry leaves a sprig
9. Coriander leaves
10. Salt to taste
12. Oil 1 tablespoon
13. Ginger a few pieces

1. Mustard seeds
2. Chann dal
3. Jeera
4. Cashew nuts a few

1. Take a cooker (or kadai)..put oil, heat it and add all tempering seeds and fry well, add cashew nuts and curry leaves and fry well.
2. Now add onions and fry well...when onions turn translucent tomatoes and chillies..and fry well, add cut vegetables (in cubes) one by one and add salt and mix well.
3. Now add wheat rava and mix well..for one cup of rava add..2 to 2.5 cups of water..depends on what consistency you want..if you want it smooth add more water..mix well and close the lid and keep the whistle.
4. After two whistles simmer for 10 minutes and switch off.  If you are doing in kadai..add water to ravva and cook till it is cooked...for beginners cooker is a easy option and upma is ready to be served in 15 minutes..Open the lid and garnsih with coriander leaves..
