Couscous Upma & My Guest Post For Siri

We start again a week of blogging marathon, for this second week of blogging marathon i choosed upmas as theme, so for the next two days i'll be posting variety upmas. For the frist day of blogging marathon, am posting a quick,easy,healthy and super filling upma with couscous. I simply used onions and usual spices to make this upma,you can very well go for mixed veggies while making this upma.

Coming to this couscous upma, even a bachelor can make this quick upma very much easily and definitely everyone at home will enjoy thoroughly this upma, i served this upma with a dash of chaat masala and we just loved it.Check out the other marathoners running this 21st edition here.


2cups Couscous
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
Oil

Soak couscous for half an hour in 4 cups of water,drain the excess of water and keep aside.

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,salt and slit opened green chillies,saute until the onions turns transculent..
