Couscous Masala Upma

BM #70 Week 1 Day 3 - 

I made this for myself on a weekday when my husband was out of town and the kids didn't care for an Indian type of breakfast. It was super easy and fast to make. I guess it is is a very versatile dish and the flavors can be added as per preference. I combined this a fruit and milk for a filling breakfast.

Ingredients - 

Couscous 1/4 cup
Carrots and Peas 1/4 cup
Ginger-Garlic-Green Chili Paste 1/4 tsp or as needed
Salt and Turmeric as needed
Almonds coarsely crushed 1 Tbsp
Lemon Juice as needed
Seasoning (Oil 1 tsp, Chana Dal 1/2 tsp, Urad Dal 1/2 tsp, Cumin seeds a pinch, Mustard seeds 1/4 tsp, Asafotida a pinch)

Couscous Masala Upma

Method Of Preparation -

Soak 1/4 cup of couscous in 1/4 cup of water for a couple minutes.

Microwave the couscous for a couple of minutes. Remove and set aside.

Meanwhile, in a heated pan add oil and the rest of the seasoning. After the dals are brown, add the ginger-garlic-chili paste.

Add the carrots and peas and saute until they are cooked well.

Sprinkle salt, turmeric and almonds and the cooked couscous.

Mix well and remove from fire.

Squeeze the lemon juice as needed and serve warm.
