Soya Upma

Who will say no to a healthy twist to our usual Indian breakfast dishes??that too the usual rava upma as soya upma. Actually this recipe is from Tarladalal's healthy breakfast cookbook, this recipe is definitely filled with healtthy and nutritious stuffs in it. I immediately got hooked to this protein rich upma while going through the cookbook and prepared them for my breakfast few days back. Obviously do i need to say anything about this tasty and healthy upma, actually the simplicity of this dish is the highlight of this upma, just cook the soya granules, saute the veggies,mix and toss everything together,thats it, watelse we need for a busy morning breakfast.

If you are a vegetarian or a soya lover like me, this simple upma is definitely a feast for u. You can carry this upma very well even for a lunch, also you can serve them as a snack if you have sudden guests, yep feed your guest with healthy stuffs,am sure they wont hesitate a second to finish their plate. This is my last and third post of this week's blogging marathon with cooking with cookbooks as theme.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#25.


1cup Cooked soya granules
1no Onion (big & chopped)
1/2cup Grated carrots
1/2cup Greenpeas
1/4cup Grated cabbage
3nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1tsp Cumin seeds
1tsp Uradal
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
1tsp Grated ginger
Oil
Salt

Heat the oil in a kadai, let crackle the cumin seeds,uraddal, add the asafoetida ,ginger and green chillies and onions..

Cook everything until the onions turns transculent.

Add the veggies now and saute them for few minute.

Finally add the cooked soya granules and toss everything gently..

Add the salt and mix again well.

Serve hot with your favourite chutney.

Dont worry,if you dont have soya granules, cook the soya chunks in salted boiling water, drain the excess of water, grind it as a coarse paste and use it.
