Semiya Uppuma

Posted by Annita on March 2, 2006

Uppuma is my all time favourite breakfast .It is tasty and easy to cook.Whenever i am lazy or in a hurry i prefer to cook Uppuma.If you have frozen vegetables available,it is much easier.Every kids will love it and it’s the same with my toddler.I used to cook Uppuma with sooji,semiya,bread,idiappom,puttu,iddli…..almost anything.Have alook at my Semiya Uppuma.Ingredients:-
Cooked Semiya – 2 cups
Add semiya & salt to boiled water with 1 tsp of oil into it.This will prevent semiya from sticking together.Allow it to boil for 5 minutes.Immediately wash it under cold running water.Drain well using a strainer.
Chopped Onion – 1
Green Chillies -2
Grated Ginger – 1/2 tsp
Tomato -1
Curry Leaves – a few
Grated Coconut/Coconut Powder – 3 tbsp
Vegetables(Green Peas,Carrot cut into juliennes,Green Beans chopped) – 1 cup
( You can also use frozen vegetables.)
Mustard Seeds – 1 tsp
Jeera Seeds – 1 tsp
Turmeric – a pinch
Salt – to taste
Oil – as needed

Cooked Semiya

Method :-
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds & jeera seeds into it.Allow it to splutter.Add salt,turmeric powder,curry leaves,onions ,ginger and green chillies and saute till onions turn light brown.Add vegetables ,grated coconut and tomato into it.

On Stove

Cook covered for 5 minutes.Finally add semiya and stir well.Simmer for 5 more minutes.Don’t forget to stir in between ,otherwise it might stick to the bottom.

    Annita, do we need to roast the semiya before boiling it? i love semiya upma. thankyou for the recipe:)

    You can do the roasting if you like.That’ll definitely add taste.I am always lazy to do all those,so I just cook it with salt..:))

    Hi Annita,

    This looks great. The only question is that if I am using Suji instead of semiya do I follow the same process or just add the suji after the onions are sauteed together with the vegetables, tomato and grated coconut?

    Thanks, Jenny
