Dill flavoured Upma

I love the aromatic flavour of Dill leaves and I wanted to make something with it and that resulted in this upma.

  • 1 cup - Rava
  • 1 cup - Chopped Carrots and Beans
  • 1/2 cup - Lima beans
  • 1/4 cup - Dill Leaves finely chopped (You may use less if you don't want the taste of dill to be dominating.)
  • 1 - green chilly ( Add more if you like it spicy)
  • 1 tsp - ginger paste/ finely chopped ginger
  • 1 tbsp - lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp - salt ( adjust to taste)
  • 2 cups - Water
  • 2 tsp - oil
  • 1 tsp - ghee
  • 1 tsp - urad dal
  • 1/2 tsp - mustard
  • Pinch of asafetida
  1. Heat the ghee in a saucepan and add the Rava to it. Fry it till golden brown and keep it aside.
  2. Now heat the oil in the saucepan and add mustard and asafetida
  3. When the mustard starts crackling add the urad dal and fry it till golden brown.
  4. Now add the ginger and green chilly, then the chopped vegetables, lima beans and the dill leaves and give them all a stir.
  5. Now add the water and bring it to a boil.
  6. Add the salt and then add the rava. Be careful while adding the rava as it will start spluttering. Simmer the stove and stir continuously to break the lumps.
  7. Switch off the Stove and add the lemon juice.
  8. Serve hot!
