Now, Lets see the preparation of Kanchipuram Upma

Preparation Time5 mins
Cooking Time 20 mins
Servings4

Ingredients:
Semolina / Rawa1 Cup
SaltTo taste
Chopped Ginger1 teaspoon
Green Chillies2
Onion1
Grated Coconut3 tablespoon
Water2 Cups

For Seasoning:
Oil1 tablespoon
Mustard Seeds1 teaspoon
Split Urid Dal1 teaspoon
Pepper Corns1 teaspoon
Cumin Seeds1 teaspoon
Curry LeavesFew

Method:
  1. Let's fry the rawa. Normally now a days we are getting roasted rawa from shops. Still, if we roast it a little in pan, it would give a nice aroma. So roast the rawa in 1 teaspoon of ghee in the pan till we get a good aroma and then take this aside

  2. Finely chop the onions, green chillies and ginger and keep it aside

  3. Add the oil in the pan and when the oil is hot, add mustard seeds. When the mustard seeds starts to sputter, add split urid dal and fry till it turns to golden brown color

  4. Now add pepper corns and cumin seeds and keep flame low till the pepper corns are fried crisply in the oil. The reason for this is if we bite the pepper corns after cooking, the crispier pepper corns have less spice and also it tastes delicious instead of the raw ones

  5. Now add the chopped onions, green chillies, ginger and curry leaves and saute the onions till they turn transparent

  6. Now take 2 tablespoon of coconut and add it to the pan of seasoned ingredients and onions and fry it till it turns golden brown color

  7. Next, add water to the pan along with salt and allow it to boil.

  8. When the water starts to boil, slowly add the roasted rawa/Semolina and mix nicely with a spatula to remove lumps

  9. Keep the flame very low and cover the pan and allow it to cook completely for about 10 minutes. Then finally add remaining coconut and mix well and remove from flame
