Ragi Seviya Upma

Ragi Seviya Upma

One of the most healthiest breakfast recipe one can come across!!
No it is not attractive, It does not need other enhancing ingredients for taste but yet filling and delightful to become 1st meal of the day!!

Undoubtedly ragi has so many health benefits that one can really not think of missing it in their daily diet for all those nutrition and nutrients it carry!! It is a common food in many South Indian Households but not as famous as idly dosa sambar vada chutney etc..

Another best way to consume ragi is in the form of vermicelli which we get in markets easily!!
It is gluten free and completely safe to consume.

Getting off to the recipe


Ragi Vermicelli / Seviya  - 2 packs
Onion - 1 Chopped
Green Chillies - 1 slit
Curry leaves - few
Grated coconut -2-3 tablespoon
Oil - 2 to 3 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Urad daal - 1tsp
Hing - A Pinch
Salt to taste


We need to steam up the vermicelli just as idli. So Prepare idly cooker with water boiling and steam coming up. Once this process starts cut open the packs of vermicelli and dip it in a bowl of water and take it out immediately drip of the extra water and  place these vermicelli inthe idly cooker stand and steam it for about 10 mins in medium heat, Once this is done take it out and cool it. When it is cooled nicely try to split open the clump and keep it in a plate so that it does not stick to each other.
Now you are ready to prepare Ragi seviya as you like.

To make upma
-You can prepare this within 5 mins
-In a kadai or non stick pan heat oil
-Add in the mustard seeds and allow it to crackle.
-Add in curry leaves, hing, urad daal and green chilly cook till urad daal turns a little brown
-Add in onion and cook till little soft add coconut and fry for a min till nice fragrance emmite
-Add in the seviya and give it a good mix. 
-Add salt and check for taste. Adjust if required!!
-Add in a little bit of ghee for extra punch of taste.
-Serve hot or cold dosent make a big difference to the taste. It is absolutely delicious both the ways!!

- Can add in some grated ginger while tempering it will give a extra punch!!
- Adding coconut can be omitted if you dont like or you dont have it for the moment.
- You can reduce the amount of oil used as per you like but do not add much oil as the vermicelli does not have the tendency to soak up oil. It will also ruin the taste by giving greasy texture in your mouth
- You can add channa dal instead of urad daal for some crunch!!
- Best Suit for tiffin box also.

Do try out and let us know how it turned. My MIL also makes another sweeter version of this seviya I shall soon post it when ever possible 

Until next bye bye
