Aval Upma

This is a quick to make breakfast/evening snack and hence often finds it place in our dining table.
Here goes the way I make it.

Ingredients:
Aval: 100 grams
Onions: 30 grams
beans: 25 grams
carrots: 25 grams
green chillies: 5 grams
ginger: 5 grams
Turmeric powder and salt to taste

To temper:
Oil: 10 grams
Mustard: 5 grams
Urad dal: 3 grams

Method:

  • Wash the aval, soak in water for about 5 minutes. Squeeze the water out, spread it in a plate, sprinkle little salt and keep it aside.
  • Fine chop the onions, beans, carrots, green chillies and ginger.
  • In a kadai, pour oil and add mustard. Once the mustard splutters, add the urad dal and fry until the dal turns slightly pink.
  • Add the onions, green chillies and ginger and saute until the onion turns translucent.
  • Add the beans and carrots as well as the salt and turmeric powder and mix well. Sprinle little water, cover and cook until the beans and carrots are cooked.
  • Add the aval and mix well until the vegetables and aval are evenly mixed.




Aval upma is ready to be served.

Note:
We can garnish the aval upma with curry leaves and coriander leaves. I didnt have stock of this.
Add lemon juice if people love tangy taste.
