Baked Upma

Yay this is the final week of baking marathon. When I started this and also until last week I was not sure that I would be able to make this. But now I am sure. Even though this week I am travelling and the whole week I am not at the comfort zone of blogging yet I should be able to meet the minimum requirements of BM I beliefe.

Upma is my favourite breakfast item. I just love it.  When I got to know that upma can be baked I immediately tried it.

This would be ideal for travels I guess. We can store it for 3-4 days and use it. We had it with fruit juice and that was a lovely combination. 


Semolina - one cup
chopped vegetables - 1 cup
baking powder - 1/4 tsp
chopped coriander leaves - little
water - 2 cups
salt - to Taste
green chillies - 2 finely chopped
ginger - 1/2 tsp finely chopped
Butter - 1/2 tsp


Grease a cake tray with butter or ghee.
Preheat the oven at 180 degree celsius.
Warm one cup of water in microwave for 3 minutes. Mix the semolina in this warm water and keep aside for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile microwave the chopped vegetables alongwith chillies and chopped ginger.
Mix the soaked semolina, boiled vegetables and salt alongwith one more cup of water. Also add the baking powder and mix well.
Pour the mixture into the greased pan and garnish with coriander leaves.
Bake at 180 degree celsius for about 40 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool in a wired rack.

Cut into desired pieces and enjoy....
