Finally, a tasty upma! Infact it is so tasty that my sister and I had a big fight over sharing it :) It is the healthiest and tastiest tiffin loaded with vegetables. Even kids who hate eating their veggies are sure to love this..

Ingredients:


Oil - 5 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Jeera (cumin seeds) 1/2 tsp
Channa dal-1/2 tsp
Urad dal 1/2 tsp
Broken cashews 1 tsp
Chopped onions 3/4 cup
2 tomatoes
Assorted veggies chopped (beans, peas, potatoes, carrots) -1 1/2 cups
Bread slices 6-7 cut into pieces
Salt to taste
Chilli powder tsp
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Chopped coriander for garnishing
1/4 tsp garam masala/curry powder - optional


Cooking Directions:

Heat oil in kadai, splutter mustard seeds, channa dal, urad dal, cashews, fry till golden brown. Add chopped onions. When glassy, add tomatoes and saute.
When the tomatoes get soft, add all the veggies. Add salt, chilli powder, turmeric and hing.
If you wish add a 1/4 tsp of garam masala. Saute well till cooked. Sprinkle some water and close and cook if necessary.
Now, add the fresh bread pieces. Mix well and cook for some more time till the bread blends with the upma.
Finally, garnish with coriander leaves. Check for salt again. Serve with ketchup or curd/yogurt.

[Alternatively, you can fry the bread pieces separately before adding them]
