Carrot Cornmeal Upma

Upma, a quick dish to prepare anytime of the day if you are in hurry, serve it simply with some coconut chutney or sugar i can have almost everyday, but am somewat healthnut nowadays and trying to avoid oily dishes quite few months, somehow my craving for upma kicked me to cook up something yesterday for our dinner, thats why i simply prepared this carrot cornmeal upma after a long...This upma gets ready very much quickly,since cornmeal are quite smaller when compared to our Indian rava, its gets cooked very much easily when compared to our rava...Also i used less water for cooking coz i used the fine quality of cornmeal for making this upma, addition of carrots gives a wonderful colour and a healthy touch to this simple upma..A wonderful,filling upma to enjoy either for breakfast or for dinner.


1cup Cornmeal
1/2cup Carrots (grated)
1no Onion (big n sliced finely)
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1tsp Ginger (minced)
1tsp Mustard seeds+urad dal
1/2tsp Channadal
3nos Dry red chillies
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
Few Curry leaves
1+1/2cups Water
Oil
Salt

Dry roast the cornmeal in a pan until a nice aroma comes out..Heat enough oil, let splutters the mustard seeds, urad dal,channadal,dry red chillies,fry until they turns brown, add now the sliced onions,grated ginger,curry leaves and slit opened green chillies,sauté until the onions turns transculent,immediately add the grated carrots and salt, cook for few seconds, add the water and bring everything to boil..

Add now the roasted cornmeal to the cooking veggies, stir continously until the cornmeal gets well cooked,put off the stove..Serve hot with chutney..
