Multigrain Rava Upma

BM #68 Day 22 - 

I saw this ready made Multigrain Rava for the first time when I visited Hyderabad last summer. My father-in-law has been taken off the rice diet and he started consuming this multi grain rava which consists of Ragi, Jowar, Wheat, Bajra and Maize. 

The rava is just cooked with water to desired consistency and eaten as a rice substitute. My father-in-law knows my fascination with these rustic grains and he convinced me to eat the cooked rava instead of rice and I was sold after just a morsel of that rava. 

So I brought home a pack of this rava to try out some more interesting recipes. The first one being this Upma. This series about the Millets has been a wonderful experience for me and my family. I hope to include more and more millets in our diet. Here is what we have enjoyed so far..

Ingredients - 

Multi Grain Rava 1/2 cup (Ragi, Jowar, Wheat, Bajra, Corn)
Mixed Vegetables 1 cup
Salt, Turmeric, Ginger-Green Chili Paste as per taste
Water 1 3/4 cups
Lime/Lemon Juice as needed
Coriander leaves for garnish
Seasoning (Oil 2 tsp, Chana Dal 1 tsp, Urad Dal 1/2 tsp, Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp, Cumin Seeds 1/4 tsp, Asafotida a pinch, Curry leaves few, Red Chili 1, Cashews few)

Multigrain Rava Upma

Method Of Preparation -

In a heated pan/kadai, add oil and the rest of the seasoning ingredients. After the mustard seeds pop and the dals are golden brown, add ginger-green chili paste and saute for a few seconds.

Add in the multi grain rava and saute until the rava is aromatic (about 2 minutes on a medium flame).

Add in the veggies and salt. Pour about 1 3/4 cups of water. Cover and let it cook until the water is absorbed and the grains are cooked through. [About 7-8 minutes].

Remove from heat. Cover and let the grains cook on the residual steam.

Serve with a dash of lime juice and a garnish of coriander leaves.
