  • Lightly fry the rava in a non-stick pan on medium heat until it begins to change colour lightly. Stir continuously while frying the rava so that it doesn’t get burnt. Remove from heat and keep aside.
  • Microwave the vegetables along with a few tablespoons of water and salt to taste, for around 3-5 minutes until half-cooked. Drain the vegetables and keep aside.
  • Add 2 tbsp oil in another pan and splutter mustard seeds. If using peanuts, throw them in and saute until they begin to change colour.
  • Add shallots, green chillies and curry leaves and saute till the shallots begin to lightly brown.
  • Add ginger and saute for 2 more minutes.
  • Throw in the half cooked vegetables and saute for a few more minutes.
  • Add 1/4 tsp turmeric powder and stir for a minute.
  • Add 2 cups of water along with salt to taste and bring everything to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and add the fried rava into the boiling water stirring continuously, so that no lumps are formed.
  • Cover the pan and cook on low heat for 5 minutes approximately.
  • If the upumavu is dry, sprinkle a few more tablespoons water and close the pan and cook for 2 more minutes.
